RL Sosa, author of The Industrious Giraffe and the Forgetful Giraffe, is mindful of the parents and adults that surround the children for whom she writes.
Previously a photojournalist, Sosa graduated from the University of Florida with a journalism degree. She switched careers to Education and, now that her three children are grown, is an author. She currently lives in Northern Virginia.
Her strength is the life she has had with her husband and children; their sense of humor, singular drive and quirky personalities inspired her.
Even the smallest, uneventful things can lead to great stories, Sosa believes. Her imagination is especially sparked by the mundane. And a good sense of humor helps her see things differently.
