Stacy Chbosky has had many adventures since writing and illustrating Who Owns the Sun? at age 14. She was named one of USA Today’s “Top 20 Academic All-Stars,” toured Europe and America performing in musicals, starred in movies and television shows, and sang with a rock band. Today, she is a screenwriter, novelist, and actress living in Los Angeles with her husband, John Erick Dowdle, and their two kids, John Henry and Maggie.
Who Owns the Sun? has had many adventures, too. In the 30 years since it was first published, it became a Disney educational film, a youth ballet (narrated by James Earl Jones), and a featured book in the Five In A Row homeschool program.
