s of Arizona.

Biography

Born in Phoenix, Arizona and raised in a quirky hotel on the outskirts of Mexico, Farmers unconventional upbringing around such types as rodeo wranglers and circus travelers all but guaranteed the unique and colorful life that was to follow. After receiving her B.A. degree from Oregons Reed College 1963, Farmer enlisted in the Peace Corps in India where she served from 1963 to 1965. From 1969 to 1971, she found herself immersed in the study of chemistry at Merritt College in Oakland, California and later at the University of California at Berkeley from 1969 to 1971. However, her wanderlust eventually took her to Africa, where she labored as a lab technician in Zimbabwe from 1975 to 1978. There, she met Harold, her husband-to-be, who was an English teacher at the University; after a weeklong courtship, they were engaged. Happily married ever since, they have a son, Daniel. On how she decided to become a writer, Farmer explained in an interview with the Educational Paperback Association, When Daniel was four, while I was reading a novel, the feeling came over me that I could create the same kind of thing. I sat down almost in a trance and produced a short story. It wasnt good, but it was fun. I was forty years old. She continues, Since that time I have been absolutely possessed with the desire to write. I cant explain it, only that everything up to then was a preparation for my real vocation. Her first book, Do You Know Me?, an adventure for young people set in Zimbabwe, was soon to follow this epiphany. The book was well-received by kids and critics alike, and Publishers Weekly praised Farmer for providing a most interesting window on a culture seldom seen in childrens books. Her follow-up, The Ear, the Eye and the Arm, was named an Newbery Award Honor Book in 1995, and also honored as a Notable Book and a Best Book for Young Adults by the American Library Association, and an Honor Book by the Golden Kite Awards, awarded by the Society of Childrens Writers and Illustrators. Most recently, The House of the Scorpion won the 2002 National Book Award for Young Peoples Literature.Good To Know

A former chemistry teacher, one of Farmers first jobs was as an insect pathology technician. Said farmer in an interview with the Educational Paperback Association, I had never taken entomology. All I knew was that bugs had more legs than cows, but my boss wanted someone who wouldnt talk back to him.
