About Heather E. Schwartz

Author, producer, and performer Heather E. Schwartz has written books and created content for Scholastic, Disney, Time for Kids, the Smithsonian, National Geographic, and NASA. She has won awards including the Jefferson Cup Honor Award, the Eureka! Gold Award, the Children’s Book Committee at Bank Street College Best Children’s Book of the Year, and the NCSS/CBC Notable Social Studies Trade Book for Young People. But perhaps the greatest honor resulting from her work as a writer came when some kindergarteners mistook her for the subject of one of her books, believing she was actually Taylor Swift.
