Gretchen Woelfle

Gretchen Woelfle traveled across America and the Netherlands to visit windmills and to talk to people who work with them. She has been known to drive down rough country roads in North America and Europe to see giant wind turbines up close. At home in Los Angeles, Woelfle writes historical fiction and biographies for children of all ages. Katje the Windmill Cat was inspired by her windmill research. All the World's A Stage: A Novel in Five Acts travels back to Shakespeare's London. Jeannette Rankin: Political Pioneer, Write on, Mercy: The Secret Life of Mercy Otis Warren, and Mumbet's Declaration of Independence celebrate heroines of the American history.
