Biographical and Professional Information

Andrea Beaty is a New York Times bestselling children's author who was raised in a small southern Illinois town, where her family ran a tiny grocery store. When she wasn’t roaming the nearby fields with her brothers and sisters, she was reading Nancy Drew mysteries up in the branches of a maple tree.

Beaty attended Southern Illinois University and studied Biology and Computer Science. After that, she worked for a computer software company where she helped people with their computer problems and did some technical writing. She attributes her tech writing as great training for writing for kids because it taught her to be a "fierce self-editor".
