About the Author

Coco Simon always dreamed of opening a cupcake bakery, but she was afraid she would eat all the profits. When sheandrsquo;s not daydreaming about cupcakes, Coco edits childrenandrsquo;s books and has written close to 100 books for children, tweens, and young adults, which is a lot less than the number of cupcakes sheandrsquo;s eaten. Cupcake Diaries is the first time Coco has mixed her love of cupcakes with writing.
