My name is Gail Langer Karwoski. I'm an American author and painter. I write books for kids and adults and paint in watercolor and acrylic.
I live in Georgia, near the university town of Athens, a hub of literary, art and musical creativity. I created this site so readers and art lovers can find information about my books, my paintings and me.
