Stacy McAnulty thinks her imagination is the most important tool in her toolbox. Before becoming a full-time author, she worked as a mechanical engineer--a job that, like writing, requires creativity and stick-to-itiveness. She is the author of several books for young readers, including the chapter book series The Dino Files and the picture books Beautiful and 101 Reasons Why I'm Not Taking a Bath. She lives with her husband, three kids, and two dogs in Kernersville, North Carolina. Find out more at stacymcanulty.com.
