    Diane Zahler is the author of four middle-grade fairy-tale retellings: The Thirteenth Princess, A True Princess, Princess of the Wild Swans, and Sleeping Beauty's Daughters. She has also written two nonfiction books for older readers, The Black Death and Than Shwe's Burma, and a nearly infinite quantity of textbook materials for elementary and high school students. She's made her home in Seattle, Morgantown, Ithaca, Solana Beach, Manhattan, the Bronx, and Belgium, but now lives with her husband and dog in an old farmhouse in the Hudson Valley. She really likes baking - and eating what she bakes.
