Sandra V. Feder is a children’s book author. She first imagined being a storyteller when she was in third grade and heard local authors talk about their work. After beginning her career in journalism, Sandra later transitioned into writing for children. She loves creating endearing characters and special worlds for them to inhabit, and she hopes her books are ones that children and families read again and again.
Her first picture book, The Moon Inside, was published by Groundwood Books in 2016 and was named one of the best books of the year by the Toronto Globe and Mail. It has been translated into French, Chinese, Taiwanese, and Korean.
Her newest picture book, Bitter and Sweet, also published by Groundwood Books, was released in October 2018. It was named a PJ Library selection for 2019, with 33,000 books sent into homes throughout the U.S. and UK, and received a starred review in Booklist.
The first book in her Daisy early-chapter book series, Daisy’s Perfect Word, was published by Kids Can Press in 2012. It was followed by Daisy’s Defining Day in 2013, and by Daisy’s Big Night in 2014.
Sandra and her family live in California.
