General Public 

Kat Yeh, author of the debut novel The Truth about Twinkie Pie, grew up reading, doodling, and scribbling in Westtown, Pennsylvania. She worked as a copywriter for many years in advertising and sports marketing, while writing poems and children's books in the wee hours of the night. She currently lives on Long Island where she spends any non-writing time being outside as much as possible and exploring all the bay and harbor beaches with her family. She has never cooked a meal without pretending to be the host of a TV cooking show.

Moderated by Caron Levis, writing for children adviser, faculty, The Creative Writing Program.
