Paul Zindel wrote novels and stories that teenagers were drawn to. But he could write for any audience, plays for the Broadway stage, fast-moving adventures for the movies, miniseries for television, picture books for children, and high-interest easy-reading novels for reluctant and disabled readers. He was a high school chemistry teacher for six years and wrote in his spare time. His play The Effects of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds won him an Obie Award in 1970 and a Pulitzer Prize in 1971. Zindel passed away in 2003.
