About the Author

Tim McGlen, author of Vlad Pale’s Crick Crack, 13 Ghoulish Tales for Tweens was first attracted to the Montessori method of education when a colleague in publishing regularly shared the interesting details of his daughter’s nontraditional education and her incredible achievements in the classroom and as a member of the community. In his tenth year as a Montessori director, Tim’s favorite thing is seeing his fifth and sixth-grade students respond with enthusiasm to a lesson and subsequent work. This happens often in the classroom and motivates him daily. Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Regardless, the sequence works, as exhibited by his students’ great attitudes and success in junior high and beyond. When Tim’s not teaching or coaching he enjoys writing for children. With Crick Crack he believes he may have actually hit one out of the infield.
