Naomi Canale grew up in the Sierra Nevadas where she was often thought of as the long lost sister of the Weasley family, or other fictional characters with wild imaginations and class clown tendencies.

Naomi has served as Co-Regional Advisor for Nevada SCBWI and has been a member since 2007. She’s also helped develop stories for Zoom Entertainment, which is steered by Executive Producer Michael Zoumas. His film credits include such movies as Coraline and Mimic. Naomi now resides in Central Texas with her three boys, a dog, a cat, a turtle, and a hamster, and is always looking forward to her next adventure. When she’s not writing, she can usually be found with a sketch book or paint brush in hand. She’s been lucky enough to showcase her paintings in many places like Ironstone Vineyards, New York’s Rocking Horse Café, E3 Gallery, and Dreamer’s Café, in downtown Reno. She’s also been published in Direct Art Magazine, and SCBWI’s bi-monthly bulletin.
