Rob Sanders is a teacher who writes, and a writer who teaches. He does not work as a telephone sales rep, a loading dock worker, a trophy engraver, or an editor. But he used to. Rob is not a cowboy, a ballerina, an alien, or a temper-tantrum-throwing toddler. But he writes about them. Rob is a picture book author, a writing teacher, a sometimes blogger, and a dog lover. He worked for fifteen years in religious educational publishing as a writer, editor, editorial manager, and product designer. These days he teaches elementary kids about books and words and reading and writing, and writes books for those same kids.
Not only does Rob write fiction, he also writes nonfiction picture books. His first nonfiction picture book was PRIDE: THE STORY OF HARVEY MILK AND THE RAINBOW FLAG (Random House, 2018). Forthcoming nonfiction picture books include: PEACEFUL FIGHTS FOR EQUAL RIGHTS (Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, 2018); and STONEWALL: A BUILDING. AN UPRISING. A REVOLUTION. (Random House, 2019). But he'll always write fiction too, including BALL & BALLOON (Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, 2019).
