Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen is a graduate of the California Institute of Technology with a degree in biology. She never thought that she would grow up to become a writer; it wasn’t until she had her two children that she took time off from being a Ph.D. candidate to pursue a career in writing. Sudipta had her first story published in 2003 in the magazine Highlights for Children. From there, Sudipta branched out into nonfiction, including books on science and biographies. Her most recent book is Half-pint Pete the Pirate, illustrated by Geraldo Valério.
Sudipta visits schools to share her stories and experience, and teaches writing to children and adults. She lives in New Jersey with her family (now comprised of three children, with the addition of son Sawyer in 2006) and an imaginary pony named Penny.
