Jamie Lee Curtis

Jamie Lee Curtis is the author of eleven┬ábest-selling children’s books that address core childhood subjects and life lessons in a playful, accessible way. Jamie finds the inspiration for her writing all around her – in the experiences of her children, her godchildren, her friends – and of course in her own life. Her first book, When I Was Little, was sparked by her then-four-year-old daughter’s boast that she was no longer “little.” Tell Me Again About the Night I Was Born, a celebration of adoption and the start of a new family, was inspired by the adoption of her own children. And as an author, of course Jamie loves big words and knows that words have power. All of Jamie’s best-selling picture books are illustrated by Laura Cornell. Jamie is also well known as a film actress, with starring roles in such acclaimed films as Beverly Hills Chihuahua, Freaky Friday, True Lies, Trading Places and A Fish Called Wanda. Jamie is the mother of Annie and Thomas and is married to actor/director Christopher Guest. They live in California.
