Who Wrote My Quiet Ship

Hallee Adelman

When I was a child, I re-envisioned neighborhood games like wire ball, traveled to space in my under-the-desk rocket, built snow castles for faraway kingdoms, and climbed trees taller than the sun (even after falling into a trash can). I also liked putting on shows in our living room and attempting gymnastic tricks–key word: attempting.

Now, I embrace that sense of wonder and create stories to empower children, teens, and families. I love all-things-Philadelphia, all forms of music, and all people who believe in kindness. My Quiet Ship is my debut picture book. You can likely find me reading it while savoring dark chocolate, attempting gymnastic tricks, or cuddling with my two daughters, hubby, and our dogs.
