Shelley Moore Thomas grew up in New Mexico, the middle of three children. A fan of fairy tales and UFOs, Shelley began channeling her abundant imagination towards writing back in elementary school. Now an elementary school teacher herself, Shelley spends her days helping the best people on the planet (children, of course!) unlock their creativity. Shelley lives in California with her kids and her dogs. Visit her online at shelleymoorethomas.com, on Twitter @story_queen, and Instagram @storyqueen.
