James VanOosting Books & Biography
James VanOosting is the author of the last payback, named a Bulletin Blue Ribbon by The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books. He lives with his wife, Dr. Dawn Williams, in New Jersey, and plays a mean game of Ping-Pong. His two grown sons are also storytellers, one as a lawyer, the other as a filmmaker. When he's not writing, he takes long walks, plays the piano and guitar, cheers for the Chicago Cubs, and teaches the occasional college student.
