Mark Eastburn studied biology at Villanova University and is now a middle school teacher. He works to promote educational opportunities and research on vegetarian jumping spiders in Latin America, where he lived for some time. Earning My Spots is his debut novel. He lives with his family in Yardley, Pennsylvania. Sky Pony Press, with our Good Books, Racehorse and Arcade imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of books for young readers--picture books for small children, chapter books, books for middle grade readers, and novels for young adults. Our list includes bestsellers for children who love to play Minecraft; stories told with LEGO bricks; books that teach lessons about tolerance, patience, and the environment, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
