Asia Citro loved school so much that she stuck around through 18th grade to get her Master's in Science Education.  After years of teaching science to kids both as a classroom teacher and as an environmental education camp director, she decided to stay home full-time after the birth of her daughter.  

When her son was born, she got a little stir-crazy and with the encouragement of friends created a blog called Fun at Home with Kids. From there Asia discovered that she loved writing and creating so much that she just went ahead and wrote seven books.  Between you and me, I don't think she's going to stop any time soon.

Her work has been featured on Apartment Therapy, The Chicago Tribune, Today, Disney Baby, MSN, King 5 TV, and Highlights.  It has even been shared by celebrities such as George Takei and Ashton Kutcher (which was really cool).  The first book in her chapter book series Zoey and Sassafras was selected by the New York Public Library as one of the Best Books for Kids in 2017.

Asia lives near Seattle with her two adorable and nutty kids, her patient husband, two messy cats, a cute parakeet, and a terrarium full of friendly bugs.
