Andrea Alban (a.k.a. Andrea Gosline) was born in 1959 in Baltimore, MD but spent her childhood reading voraciously in San Francisco, where she still lives with her family. On a weekly basis, she visited the Merced Branch Library and returned home with a pile of books on many different subjects. She received her B.A. cum laude in English/Creative Writing from San Francisco State University.

Today, she is mother to Jake and Lily and the author of three picture books: The Happiness Tree (2009 Florida Children's Book Award nominee); Ten Little Wishes, and Januarys Child: The Birthday Month Book. Her forthcoming debut novel, Anyas War, is loosely based on her fathers childhood as one of the Shanghai Jews. (Feiwel & Friends/Macmillan; February 1, 2011)
