Lynn Alpert, Designer, Children’s Book Author/Illustrator

I fell in love with picture books as a child, and never quite got over it. Sometimes I even hug them, like in this photo! Now I spend my free time reading them, learning about them, and creating them.

I love animals and most of my stories revolve around them.

I also love graphic design and work as a designer at my day job. I use my design skills to create the quarterly newsletter for the KS/MO region of SCBWI.

Some other things that I love are chocolate, cookies, tea, the sound of a purring cat, and Ted Lasso.


I live in St. Louis, Missouri with my husband and 2 cats where I’m usually found reading, writing, or drawing with a cup of tea and a cat or two on my lap.
