M. E. Kerr was born Marijane Meaker in Auburn, New York. Her interest in writing began with her father, who loved to read, and her mother, who loved to tell stories of neighborhood gossip. Unable to find an agent to represent her work, Meaker became her own agent, and wrote articles and books under a series of pseudonyms: Vin Packer, Ann Aldrich, Laura Winston, M. E. Kerr, and Mary James. As M. E. Kerr, Meaker has produced over twenty novels for young adults and won multiple awards, including the Margaret A. Edwards Award for her lifetime contribution to young adult literature.
“[Dinky Hocker Shoots Smack!] will make you cry . . . full of wit and wisdom and an astonishing immediacy that comes from spare, honest writing. Many writers try to characterize the peculiar poignancy and the terrible hilarity of adolescence. Few succeed as well as M. E. Kerr.” —The New York Times

“The characters ring true, every one; the dialogue has vitality and humor; the book has an integrity of conception that is a solid base for the sophistication of its wit and humor.” —Chicago Tribune

“This author’s talent is abundantly evident. . . . Wildly humorous and, at the same time, touching.” —Publishers Weekly

“Kerr’s honesty, evident respect and consistently on-target wit will keep Dinky’s contemporaries laughing and nodding agreement.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
