Pat Schmatz is the author of Bluefish, which garnered three starred reviews. In one, School Library Journal said the book has all the hallmarks of a classic and is packed with memorable and believable characters and powered by the prospect of redemption. About Lizard Radio, the author says, I keep a notepad with sketches and ideas and one day, a lonely lizard wearing headphones came out of my pencil. The young lizard was desperate to pick up a signal and from that moment on, so was I. When I tuned in, I found this story. Pat Schmatz lives in Wisconsin.
