Heidi E.Y. Stemple

Heidi E.Y. Stemple is a second-generation children’s book author who has published more than 30 books including Counting Birds, I Am The Storm, and Not All Princesses Dress In Pink. She usually travels to teach writing and gather with other creative people, but in 2020, when the world shut down, she found herself alone and a bit scared. So, she wrote about it in Adrift. She also made hundreds of masks for educators, created YouTube videos for distance learning, and found new ways to stay connected with her friends and family. Like everyone, she is looking forward to being together again.
