Joan Holub graduated from college in Texas with a fine arts degree, and then freelanced as an art director at a graphic design firm for eight years. She dreamed of working in children’s books, so she moved to New York City and became associate art director in Scholastic trade books, where she designed books for children and worked with editors and illustrators.
She illustrated her first published children’s book in 1992 and soon began illustrating full time. She began completing manuscripts and mailing them out to publishers in the early 1990s. In 1996, she sold her first two manuscripts -- Boo Who? A Spooky Lift-the-Flap Book (Scholastic) and Pen Pals (Grosset & Dunlap).
Now she writes full time and has written and/or illustrated over 130 children’s books. Creating books that entertain, inform, and interest children (and herself) is a fabulous job that she truly loves.
