Bridget Hodder began her career as an archaeologist, interpreting the history of ancient civilizations. Then she put her interpretive skills to use helping children with learning challenges, and helping teachers work with learning-disabled students in their classrooms. Now that she's an author, Bridget writes at home in a New England seaside cottage, where she can watch the sailboats go by in the summer, or sit by the fireside in the winter. She loves hearing from readers, and hopes to hear from you!
