Author Deborah Kaplan

Author bio

Deborah Kaplan is a graduate of at the Simmons College Center for the Study of Children's Literature, and because she couldn't get enough, occasionally goes back to teach the Fantasy and Science Fiction class. She's a librarian, archivist, programmer, web accessibility specialist, book reviewer at Kirkus Reviews, and all-around over-committed person. She's been living with chronic pain and weakness in her hands for almost 15 years (pay attention to ergonomics, folks!) and is always looking for good disability representation in children's and young adult literature. Right now she's working as a web developer and volunteering as an invited expert on accessibility issues for the World Wide Web Consortium. She blogs infrequently about children's and YA literature, technology, librarianship, and disability.
