Claudia Harrington served ten years as Co-Regional Advisor of the Los Angeles Regional Chapter, along with Co-Regional Advisor, Edie Pagliasotti. Through her dedicated service to the LA Chapter, Claudia mentored countless aspiring writers and illustrators towards their dreams of publication. A published author with ABDO Publishing, she penned a series of educational picture books, My Family (Vol. 1 & 2), as well as a second series of early chapter books, Hank the Pet Sitter, which debuted in the spring of 2018.
