Meet the Author: Barbara Davis-Pyles

BARBARA DAVIS-PYLES is a former psychologist who went out on a limb to pursue her passion for writing… It has been a very long limb! Over the years, she’s created poems, a pipe organ demonstrator, and hundreds of stories and articles for the children’s education market. She is the author of Grizzly Boy, Stubby the Fearless Squid, and Cliff the Failed Troll. When Barbara’s not writing, she can be found hiking, biking, or packing for a road trip. She lives in the northwest corner of Washington State with her family. Find out more at
