Today I will be interviewing L.A. Kefalos, children’s book author of books; This is A. Blob and A. Blob on a Bus. She was born and raised in Barberton, OH. After high school, she went on to earn her Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Akron. She has worked for a number of companies specializing in automation controls, including Goodyear Tire where she specialized in machine control engineering. This job allowed her to travel the world! Today she works as Lead Automation Engineer for a company in the entertainment industry.
In addition to her engineering background, she also has experience in communications, writing for multiple Fortune 500 Companies.

L A. Kefalos is no stranger to writing stories to entertain little folks. A. Blob on a Bus is her second picture book in The Blob Series, which chronicles school life with a bully. It is the continuation of This is A. Blob, which follows a bully named A. Blob as it makes it away around the playground. In addition to her picture books, she has also created several animated shorts, including Who’s That Knocking; Chug; and Crocs, Pots, and Wildebeests, which screened at the 2010 Los Angeles Women’s International Film Festival and was nominated for Best Independent Short in the ages 5-8 category at the 2009 Kid’s First Film Festival.
