Whitney Stewart

Whitney Stewart began writing young adult biographies and meditating after she met and interviewed the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet, the subject of two of her books, in 1987 and lived with a Tibetan refugee family in India. For her next biographies, she trekked with Sir Edmund Hillary in Nepal, interviewed Burma's Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi, and climbed along China's Great Wall to research the lives of Deng Xiaoping and Mao Zedong. In 2004, Stewart collaborated with Sally Rippin on a picture book about the Buddha, which contains a foreword and meditation suggestion from the 14th Dalai Lama. In addition to nonfiction books, Stewart had published three middle-grade novels.In August 2005, Stewart was trapped in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina and evacuated by helicopter from a rooftop. She returned home five months later and volunteered as a creative writing teacher at Sophie B. Wright Charter Middle School. She discovered that her students suffered from post-Katrina upheaval and disorientation. Using meditation, improvisation, and word play, Stewart taught her fifth-grade students to write poetry and short stories.

 Due to a Spambomb attack, our contact form is having issues!  

A notification about our contact form inquiries:  A few weeks back,  we endured a spam-bomb attack.  We received literally tens of thousands of emails, via our contact form on the CONTACT page.  Our web guys leapt into action, and put in a "ReCaptcha" element, to try to stop the spam bombs.   And it worked, hooray. However, it apparently also caused a glitch, in which we have NOT received all the submitted inquiries, from real customers and prospective customers. We apologize for this and we're in the process of fixing it. In the meantime, if you do not hear from us same-day, or at the absolute latest, within 24 hours, please email us directly, not using the CONTACT form, but the email address on our CONTACT page in the "How to Reach Us" column, thank you. We apologize for any inconvenience and we hope it's all resolved shortly. 

Thank you for your understanding.
