Aileen Swartz grew up in the riverside town of Gadsden, AL. Her first two books focus on swimming and her passion is using creativity to empower children to become safe swimmers.
Aileen swam on summer and winter teams throughout her childhood. She loved it when her coaches incorporated games into the practices, so when she went on to coach a swim team, she brought the games. These fun swim methods are detailed in her instructional books. Over the years, Aileen taught beginner to advanced swim lessons.
She loves writing, teaching art at the local senior center, and substitute teaching. She has a Marketing Degree from Auburn University and a Minor in English. She resides in North Georgia with her husband, Andrew, five children and a dog. You may see them in the water playing games together on hot summer days!
