Roz Rosenbluth is the author of Getting To Know Ruben Plotnick, illustrated by Maurie Manning.
Roz was a winner of the Highlights Magazine humorous fiction contest in 2000, and her stories have appeared
in Highlights and Cricket Magazines. Roz has published twelve picture books.
Of her craft, Roz says, "I feel most fulfilled when my stories reflect the culture and values I grew up with in a
close community of working-class, politically aware people. My husband of 44 years, a research scientist,
and my three children, have always encouraged my writing and have been my severest critics and biggest fans.
Now I am lucky to have six grandchildren, ages one to eleven, to inspire me with their sense of wonder, tears
Roz lives in New Rochelle, New York.
