About the Author
Laura Elizabeth Podeschi conceived of Ants in the Band Room as a way to blend her passions for art, writing, and music. She developed these artistic and writing interests while attending Millikin University, earning a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Graphic Design, as well as a minor in English writing.
She earned numerous academic distinctions, including being named a James Millikin Scholar and serving a term as Vice President of the American Institute of the Graphic Arts.
After graduating in 2006, Laura went to work as the Developmental Editor for Sports Publishing, LLC, in Champaign, IL. Her first love is creation, though, and she plans to continue creating positive stories for children and young adults.
