Charlotte Sullivan Wild, a former bookseller at The Twig Book Shop, was first struck speechless by a crush in preschool. But she’s not shy about love anymore! She has loved teaching, talking about books on the radio, creating kidlit events for the Southwest Texas chapter of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, and singing with the Live Oak Singers. Her first picture book is The Amazing Idea of You, illustrated by Mary Lundquist (Bloomsbury 2019). Originally from snowy Minnesota, she now lives wherever her wife is stationed, from Texas to Italy, to see what they might find—together! She is represented by Minju Chang at BookStop Literary Agency. Learn more:
