About the Author

A bit of a job-hopper, Betty Eckgren taught school in California and Hawaii; then worked as a journalist for the Honolulu Star-Bulletin; next, an information officer in Tokyo, and advertising copywriter in London. With a master's degree in Library Science, she became a librarian in the Los Angeles and South Pasadena Public Libraries; later, in Canada, at the Greater Victoria Public Library.

A Changed Man is her second book. The first, 500 Live Ideas for the Grade Teacher, was co-authored by Vivian Fishel and published by Row-Peterson. It sold more than 30,000 copies.
