Aimée Bissonette is a local author of children's books. She was born in New Kensington, Pennsylvania, the sixth of seven children. She grew up with her suitcase never fully unpacked—her family moved many times and she attended 8 different schools before graduating from high school.
Aimée earned her Bachelor’s degree from Colorado State University and her Law degree from the University of Minnesota Law School. She has worked as an occupational therapist, teacher, lawyer, and small business owner. In her legal practice, she works with numerous children’s book authors and illustrators. In addition to her books for children, Aimée has published a book for K-12 teachers and administrators on the legal issues associated with technology in the schools. She lives with her husband, family, and dogs in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Our final pre-launch BookHounds interview was with Aimée Bissonette. She is the author of Northwoods Girl and Miss Colfax's Light. We had some technical difficulties while recording this interview due to malfunctions of my own. However, I was able to capture the story in full and most of the interview.
Thanks for your understanding and enjoy the show.
