Maggie is an author-illustrator, designer, and all-around book lover. She grew up on the southern coast of Maine and studied design and art history at University of Pennsylvania. For seven years, she worked in-house for two major children’s publishers where she designed, art directed, and illustrated dozens of covers. In those roles, Maggie has felt lucky to work on Newbery Medal winners, Printz Honor recipients, a National Book Award shortlisted title, and numerous New York Times bestsellers.
