Lynn Alpert
Illustrator | Designer | Storyteller

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!

I create art and stories with heart, humor, and a sense of whimsy. I love underdog stories and narratives that celebrate those that live to the beat of their own drums. I’m also a sucker for quirky art, furry creatures, and a pun or two. Like they say, “Seven days without a pun…. makes one weak.”

I also love design and work as a graphic designer at my day job. I use my design skills to create the quarterly newsletter for the KS/MO region of SCBWI. I also enjoy creating designs for t-shirts and other merch. You can purchase them at Baked T’s and Society 6.

Some other things that I love are the heart and humor of Ted Lasso, the physical comedy of Jack Black, the smell and taste of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, the warmth of a cuppa tea, and the sound of a purring cat.


I can usually be found reading, writing, and/or drawing with a cuppa tea and a cat or two on my lap at home in St. Louis, Missouri.
