Stephanie Ledyard grew up in Wichita Falls, Texas, unsupervised and sunburned, exploring fields with her best friend and writing occasional poems for her grandparents. Stephanie earned her MFA in Writing for Children & Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts. Having worked as a language arts teacher, hospice grief-program coordinator, and reluctant organist, she is happy to spend her days writing picture books and poetry, and helping out in a high school library. She lives in Dallas with her husband, daughters, cats, and dog.
