Be An Author Interview – Lu Ann Staheli, Author of Leona & Me, Helen Marie

Lu Ann Staheli Today’s interview is with Lu Ann Brobst Staheli. Lu Ann got her start as a celebrity paparazzi-stalker-chick, which led to her award-winning career as a ghostwriter for celebrity memoirs. A masochist at heart, she taught junior high school English for 33 years, moved to the school library for year 34, and once spent two weeks summer vacation backpacking through Europe with 15 of her students.

Her published works include A Note Worth Taking; Leona & Me, Helen Marie; When Hearts Conjoin; Psychic Madman; One Day at a Time: Teaching Secondary Language Arts; and Books, Books, and More Books: A Parent and Teacher’s Guide to Adolescent Literature.
