Linas Alsenas has written a number of books, including Gay America: Struggle for Equality and several picture books, which he also illustrated. Raised in a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio, Linas lived in New York City and Stockholm, Sweden, before settling in London. He spends his weekdays working as a children’s books editor at Scholastic UK, and he and his husband spend their weekends exploring the city and the English countryside. Oh—and also writing! Er, I mean, Linas writes, not the husband. Whose name is Jan. He puts up with a lot. Anyway.
