Nerds, Geeks, Dads - Episode 46 - Kellen Hertz - Tenney - American Girl

Art Eddy talks with Kellen Hertz, author of Tenney, a book from the American Girl doll series. Other books available are Tenney Shares the Stage and Tenney in the Key of Friendship.

Art chats with Kellen about the book series, working with American Girl for the books, writing for Logan (the first American Girl doll that is a boy), and family life.

As a young reader, Kellen Hertz loved L. Frank Baum’s Wizard of Oz series. But since the job of Princess of Oz was already taken, she decided to become an author. Alas, her unfinished first novel was lost in a sea of library books on the floor of her room, forcing her to seek other employment. Since then Kellen has worked as a screenwriter, television producer, bookseller, and congressional staffer. Kellen lives with her husband and their son in Los Angeles.
