Godfrey Coppinger is a five-year-old cleverly disguised as a little old lady. She is a life-long doodler, scribbler, and storyteller. She loves to sing songs. make music, and dance. Godfrey looks funny when she dances, but she doesn’t care.
Godfrey lives in Listowel, County Kerry, Ireland, with a leprechaun, a fancy dog, and a retired pirate. She tells stories regularly at the Kerry County Library and works with Fighting Words, (fightingwords.ie) a creative writing program that helps students of all ages develop their writing skills and explore their love of writing.
She regularly walks the streets of Listowel, searching for new adventures and new friends. Godfrey has never ridden a horse or an elephant, but both are on her bucket list.
She is variously known as The Frog Queen of the San Joaquin, Woman-Who-Runs-With-Lizards, and Teacher Goofball.
Godfrey is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, The National Storytelling Network, and the Fresno Folklore Society.
