Phyllis Reynolds Naylor didn't know that when she wrote the first Alice book, it would be the start of a series. She has a photographic memory of her childhood and teenage years, and many of her experiences -- especially the embarrassing ones -- find their way into her books. Phyllis plans to take Alice up to her first year of college, and the final book will cover the highlights of Alice's life from ages eighteen to sixty.

She writes for both children and adults, and is the author of over one hundred books, including The Agony of Alice; Alice in Rapture, Sort of; Reluctantly Alice; All but Alice; Alice in April; Alice In-Between; Alice the Brave; Alice in Lace; Outrageously Alice; Achingly Alice; Alice on the Outside; and The Grooming of Alice. In 1992, her novel, Shiloh, was awarded the Newbery Medal.
