Betsy James

Betsy James, author and illustrator of more than a dozen books for children, likes chairs that are comfortable to write in. Her favorites are the wonky kind built by somebody's uncle, with layers of different-colored paint worn away by generations of bottoms. She sits in six of these (though never all at once) in her home in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
