Maya Gold is the author of the middle-grade series Cinderella Cleaners. She writes books for adults under a different name. Her eyes are a mix of hazel and gray, and though some of her ancestors come from New England, she doesn't think they were witches. She lives in upstate New York with her daughter.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4–6—In Change of a Dress, 13-year-old Diana works after school at her father's dry-cleaning business. She loves clothes and fashion, chatting on Facebook to her friend Jessica, and wishing that she had a boyfriend like Adam Kessler (a Zac Efron teen-idol type). Her wish is almost granted when she discovers tickets to the current play that he is starring in. Despite her better judgment, she finds a dress and transportation, and considers herself lucky to be attending when she suddenly meets Adam Kessler. What will she do and does she continue to pretend she's the owner of the tickets? Prep Cool finds Diana sneaking into elite Foreman Academy in order to find Jessica's stolen cell phone. To complete her disguise, she borrows a school uniform that has been dropped off at the cleaners. Things do not go smoothly, and once again she has to do some fast thinking. As in the first story, all ends well. These books aren't great literature, but they're easy to read, and girls will love to slip into them.—Julie Shatterly, W.A. Bess Elementary School, Gastonia, NC
