Katrin van Dam
Growing up, Katrin van Dam lived for singing, dancing, acting and generally showing off. She majored in Theater Studies at Yale and then moved to New York to become a big star. She soon discovered that she had a crippling attachment to food and shelter, and that her acting career was unlikely to yield much of either. So Katrin got a job in children’s media, where she learned that she loved writing for kids. Twenty-mumble years later, she is a creative executive at a major media company and writes in her spare time.
