Lynda Rutledge has been a junior high teacher, a copywriter, a journalist, a book club director, and, once upon a time, a 13-year-old. She was inspired to write this young adult novel after researching the world of donor insemination for a series on the subject of the human side of "reprotech."

Her articles have appeared coast to coast in major newspapers such as the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Sun-Times, the Houston Post and the San Diego Union-Tribune, and her nonfiction books have been reviewed in The Washington Post, U.S. News and World Report, Library Journal and Publishers Weekly. She's also taught on the faculties of Baylor University, Texas Tech University, Columbia College Chicago, and Austin Peay State University. She won an Illinois Arts Council award for this topical young adult novel, Brave New Wanda.
