Alma is the oldest female of eight children. She spent a good part of her childhood writing plays for the neighborhood kids, posting entries to her diary, and concocting all sorts of poems and tales to keep the younger children in her family entertained. In Alma Hammond's 'Travel with Me' children's book series, Alma writes stories about creatures she encountered on travel. The stories celebrate friendship, diversity, respect for nature, and acceptance of others and self. Each book includes fun facts about the animals, culture, and geography of a particular location. All of Alma's children's books are written to entertain both the adult and child, and are inspired by real-life observations.
Alma currently lives with her husband, Bob, two cats Violet and Daisy, and her dog Stazi in Bethesda, MD. She enjoys hot yoga, barre classes, spending time with friends and family, learning languages, as well as traveling to meet new inspirations for her 'Travel with Me' series.
