Stacy McAnulty is a children’s book author, who used to be a mechanical engineer, who could be a dog therapist (three qualifies, right?), a correspondent for Last Week Tonight (why not), and a Green Bay Packer coach (totally!).
She has authored over twenty-five books including her debut middle-grade novel, The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl, which was a Junior Library Guild Selection, a summer “Indie Kids Next List” pick, and winner of the Mathical Book Prize. It was also selected as a ‘Best Book’ of the year by Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Kirkus, and Parents Magazine, and an NPR 2018 ‘Great Read’. She received the 2017 Ezra Jack Keats New Writer Honor for her picture book Excellent Ed. Her other picture books include Earth! My First 4.54 Billion Years, part of the ‘Our Universe’ series, Max Explains Everything: Soccer Expert, and Beautiful, and she’s the author of two chapter book series.
When not writing, Stacy likes to listen to NPR, bake triple-chocolate cupcakes, and eat triple-chocolate cupcakes (something has to fuel all that writing). Originally from upstate NY, she now lives in Kernersville, NC with her husband, three children, and at least three dogs.
