About the Author
Michael Mazo was born in Moscow and moved to Washington, D.C., as a child. He received his Bachelor’s degree from Brandeis University and Master’s from Yale. Shortly after graduating, he met the woman who would become his wife and bragged that he was a children’s book author. So he had to write a children’s book. Michael currently works for Frank Foundation Child Assistance International, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping disadvantaged children around the world, and he runs Leaves of Grass Vineyards in Middleburg, VA, with his best friends, bull terriers Nicholas and Gula.
