S.E. Schlosser

S.E. Schlosser is the author of the Spooky Series published by Globe Pequot Press. She has been telling stories since she was a child, when games of “let’s pretend” quickly built themselves into full-length tales acted out with friends. A graduate of both Houghton College and the Institute of Children’s Literature, Sandy received her MLS from Rutgers University while working as a full-time music teacher and a freelance author.

Sandy is the editor and writer of American Folklore website, which feature myths, legends, fairy tale, fables and folktales from North America. She travels extensively, researching supernatural folklore all over the United States. She also spends many hours answering questions from visitors to the American Folklore and World Folklore web sites. Her favorite e-mails come from other folklore enthusiasts who delight in practicing the old tradition of who can tell the tallest tale.
