About the Author / Arranger
In addition to being a published author of quality fiction for young people, Olive Huisman is an accomplished singer, pianist, composer and arranger.
She sang with the Maryland Choral Society for 18 years and with the University of Maryland chorus for two performances at the Kennedy Center.
Ms. Huisman taught piano and music theory for 30 years until she retired to write, something she'd always dreamed of doing. She has done quite well in her writing career with several published short stories and two published books, Best Friends and A Guest In The House.
She and her husband, Seth, currently live in Cornwall, PA and enjoy spending time with their three children and six grandchildren, several of whom often remind her what it's like to be a teenager.
