In case you were wondering…

No, I’m not the woman who writes the children’s books about a community of bears with all-too-human foibles. That’s Jan Berenstain. Together with her late husband Stan, she wrote more than 300 books about the amiable bears, which spawned a few animated television series.

For more information, see this Wikipedia article.

I’m asked frequently if I’m “the Berenstain Bears lady,” and occasionally (despite the fact that I’m a full generation younger) I’m tempted to say yes — restrained only by the paralyzing fear that someone will ask me to create a drawing based on the characters. The irony is that I do draw a little, but I’m not sure I could manage such an audacious forgery.

In any case, I thought I should issue a clarification, particularly in view of the fact that I’ve seen my name (spelled correctly) crop up on Google in conjunction with the ursine books.

So the next time someone asks you if I’m the author of the bear books, feel free to set the record straight: My specialty is computers, not cartoons.
