Jamie Rodarte


Children’s Book Author

Jamie’s introduction to writing began in first grade with a story about a leprechaun named Breaker who entertained kids with his mad breakdancing skills. In third grade, she went through her first-grade stories and graded them pretty harshly. Revision-focused from a young age, she is continually working on improvements. Jamie lives in Southern California with her family, is a proud Latinx, animal lover, and UCI alum (zot! zot! zot!). When not writing you can find her organizing her children’s book-only front yard library, supervising her daughter’s 57,952 batch of slime, or dreaming up ways to be more environmentally focused, oh, and (shhhh) always secretly adding more pets to her zoo, errrr, home.
