Renée Rodgers Barstack

Dr. Renée Rodgers Barstack has a doctorate degree in English Education. She started out teaching seventh grade English and went from there to teach at several colleges and a university. She is currently teaching Children’s Literature at Glendale Community College in Arizona.

She lives in Phoenix with her three cats and two tortoises. Munchkin is one of her cats and she, along with Dr. Barstack’s students, inspired her to write My Pet Peeve. She already has a sequel in the process called “Pet Peeve Jumps the Wall.”

Look for more stories about Munchkin, also known as “my pet peeve,” to follow. The illustrator, Mar Fandos, is an artist living in Argentina, and she has illustrated several other children’s picture books.
