Leah Marinsky Sharpe has been fascinated with fairy and folk tales since she was a child. When her mother asked her to collaborate on a children’s book she thought immediately of The Goat-Faced Girl, her version of a traditional story that left an impression on her when she came across it years ago. Leah is a doctoral candidate in the University of Minnesota’s Conservation Biology program, her work focuses on management of aquatic invasive species. She grew up in Buffalo, NY and just recently moved from Minnesota to Vermont since she is apparently on a quest to find the most wintery place in the country.
