Lynn Alpert, Children’s Book Author and Illustrator

Throughout my life, I’ve spent countless hours getting lost in other worlds through reading and drawing. My love of words and images lead me to graphic design.

While working as a professional designer, my love for children’s books resurfaced. I decided to learn all there is to know about how to write and illustrate children’s picture books and get them ready for publication. I am currently writing and illustrating several stories that I hope will show up in bookstores soon.


I live in St. Louis, Missouri with my husband and 1.5 cats. I can usually be found reading, writing or drawing with a cat on my lap.

Nothing makes me happier than illustrating children, with a dose of design thrown in here and there to keep me on my toes. Some of my design work can be seen on Behance.
