Lindsey Stoddard lives in Vermont, USA where she writes middle grade novels, raises her two young children, and loves to ski, hike mountains, and play outside with her family and their dog. Before she became a professional writer, Lindsey lived in New York City for twelve years where she taught middle school English. It was there, in her classroom and with her students, that she began imaging the characters and stories that would become her books. Lindsey received her Masters of Fine Arts in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts and has since published four critically acclaimed middle grade novels.
