Welcome to the official site of author Mitali Perkins. I crawled out on the fire escape to read and write when we first moved to Flushing, Queens. It was a safe place for me; I try to offer a safe place here on Mitali's Fire Escape for my visitors. 

If you don't know anything about me, I'm the author of several books for young readers, speak here and thereand blog—mostly about stories between cultures. Browse around at leisure to get to know more about me. I'd like to get to know you, too, so feel free to get in touch.
