Penny Parker Klostermann is the author of There Was an Old Dragon Who Swallowed a Knight (Random House Children’s Books, 2015) and the upcoming, A Cooked-Up Fairy Tale (Random House Children’s Books, Spring 2017). She loves all kinds of books, but especially loves very silly picture books that make her laugh. She has been known to hug her favorite picture books and seriously hopes that someday her books will gain huggable status too.
Penny is a member of SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators). She was named the 2012 Barbara Karlin Grant Runner-up. She is represented by Tricia Lawrence of the Erin Murphy Literary Agency.
Penny grew up in Colorado and now lives in Abilene, Texas-the Storybook Capital of Texas!
