About the Author
Dorothea Jensen has been writing historical fiction and rhyming verse for many years. Her first historical novel about the American Revolution, The Riddle of Penncroft Farm, has been in print since 1989. A Teachers' Choices selection of the International Reading Association (now the International Literacy Association), it is used in schools around the country as a learning resource for learning about the American Revolution.Her second historical novel, A Buss from Lafayette, was released in 2016. It centers on a 14-year-old girl, Clara, whose life is profoundly changed by meeting General Lafayette during his 1824-5 Farewell Tour. During the course of the story, Clara (along with readers) learns all about what the young Marquis de Lafayette did to help us win the American Revolution. Dorothea co-authored a teacher's guide for A Buss from Lafayette to make it easy for teachers to help students learn about Lafayette's crucial role in our history, the American Revolution itself, the the importance of the French Alliance, and Lafayette's Farewell Tour.Dorothea also writes picture books in verse about high tech 21st century elves: Tizzy, Blizzy, Dizzy, Frizzy, Bizzy, Fizzy, Whizzy, and Quizzy.Her books have all garnered awards and honors, detailed on her website: www.dorotheajensen.com.Combining her knowledge of history with her delight in composing rhymes, Dorothea started finding couplets forming in her head about Lafayette. Inspired by the musical Hamilton and by Longfellow's poem, The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere, (which she had to memorize in 5th grade) she ended up writing the whole story of Lafayette's key role in our Revolutionary War in rhyming verse.
