About Marie Dimitrova
Marie Dimitrova has always felt a strong connection with animals, and they have served as the inspiration for her whimsical children's books. Marie grew up in Southern California riding horses and competing in equestrian competitions. As a child, she always dreamed about what her horse, Norman, did at night while she was sleeping. Night Night, Norman is based on this funny, affectionate horse whom she cared for so much. Marie loves all animals, especially her pug, Lulu, who is a devoted writing companion.
