Short bio: Julie Falatko is a children’s book author with a library degree, who writes quirky stories about misunderstood creatures. She grew up in New Jersey, and now lives in Maine with her husband, four children, and two dogs, where she maintains a Little Free Library in front of her house.

Still short, but slightly longer bio: When Julie Falatko was 8 years old, she wrote her first story, about a family of ornery foghorns. Making things up was so much fun, she knew she had to figure out how to do that forever. She went on to earn an English degree and a library degree, and now she mostly writes stories about misunderstood animals trying to find their place in the world. Julie lives in Maine with her husband, four children, and two dogs, where she maintains a Little Free Library in front of her house.
