CAROLYN MARSDEN has an MFA in Writing for Children from Vermont College and is the author of THE GOLD-THREADED DRESS, the prequel to THE QUAIL CLUB, which received enormous critical acclaim and was named a BOOKLIST Top Ten First Novel for Youth and a BOOKLIST Editors' Choice. She is also the author of MOON RUNNER, SILK UMBRELLAS, and MAMA HAD TO WORK ON CHRISTMAS. Of THE QUAIL CLUB, she says, "When my younger daughter, Preeya, was in third grade, there was a school talent show, and she experienced a conflict between performing her Thai dance alone or dancing with her friends. I took that framework, plus elements from my imagination, and created this story."
