Brittany earned her B.A. in history and art history from The College of New Jersey and an M.A. in history from Villanova University. Some of her fondest college memories came from a semester studying English literature in Britain. In her free time, she enjoys traveling, playing Taboo (and winning) during game night, baking award-winning apple pies (possible exaggeration), and writing nonfiction picture books. She is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, the Women’s National Book Association, The National Council of the Social Studies, NJAIS, and she attends teaching and writing conferences regularly.
