Meet the Author and Illustrator of Shawn Sheep The Soccer Star
The author Erin Mirabella represented the United States at the 2000 and 2004 Olympic Games in track cycling.  She lives in Divide, Colorado,with her husband, Chris and son, Micah.  She is hard at work on the next Barnsville Sports Squad book.  Look for its release in 2009.

Erin wrote Shawn Sheep The Soccer Star because she realized that lot's of kids don't  have a good role model.  She hopes her story will teach kids the importance of good sportsmanship and that some athletes, even though they are fabulous at their sports, aren't good role models.

Erin firmly believes that how you win is just as important, if not more important, than winning.
