Sharon K. Solomon's Children's Books



What was your first published book?

My first book is called Primary Science Readers� Theatre.  It was published by Pieces of Learning in 2002.  It has eleven science plays for elementary age children.


When and why did you start writing?

As a reading specialist, I noticed that many students had difficulty reading and understanding the science textbooks.  So I took one of the ideas from the second grade science book about animal habitats and wrote a play.  I typed it up and made copies for the classes to read, and it was a big hit!  The children laughed and enjoyed the characters and learned new vocabulary and ideas as well.  I decided to write ten more science plays and was able to get them published by Pieces of Learning.


Where do your ideas come from?

 I love to read, travel and learn new things.  Sometimes I get ideas from reading books and my imagination begins to take over.  I am not fond of fantasy, but I do read a lot of nonfiction, and realistic and historical fiction.  When I travel, I meet new people and see new �worlds� that open up my mind to new possibilities.  I love to do research in the library and on the internet.  Sometimes my ideas come from real things that have happened to me or my family.


What was your favorite book growing up?

I don�t remember one particular book or author.  I read whatever I could find at the library, especially fairy tales.  I recall reading all of the mysteries in the Nancy Drew Series.  I think most girls my age fantasized about being a woman detective, driving a fancy car, and solving mysteries.  It was exciting!


Do you have a favorite author?

Some of my favorite children�s authors are Jane Yolen, Jerry Spinelli, Cynthia Rylant, Patricia Polacco, Patricia Reilly Giff, and Lois Lowry.  My favorite adult author is John Steinbeck because he wrote in so many different styles and genres.  I am kind of like that, too.  I may write a nonfiction book, then a picture book, and then historical fiction.  I also love to read books by Anne Tyler, John Updike and Philip Roth.

What was your childhood like?

I grew up in western Pennsylvania in a steel mill town near Pittsburgh.  I am three minutes older than my twin sister, Janis.  We spent most of our childhood together and are still very close.  We played jump rope, hopscotch, hide and seek and Monopoly.  Janis and I had a sandbox in the backyard.  We made pretend �cakes� and held tea parties.  We had roller skates that hooked on to our shoes and we skated up and down the sidewalks.  We didn�t have a lot of money, but the library was always free and accessible.  It was my favorite place in the world.  One day I checked out a book and came home and found out that Janis had also checked out the exact same book!
