Andrea Beaty

As a kid, Andrea Beaty was a big reader who LOVED Nancy Drew and Trixie Beldon Mysteries.  Then she moved on to Agatha Christie books and then the classics.  

She attended Southern Illinois University and studied Biology and Computer Science. After that, she worked for a computer software company. She helped people with their computer problems ("Did you try turning it off and on again?") and some technical writing. She didn't know at the time, but tech writing was great training for writing for kids because it taught her to be a fierce self-editor. 


Now, she lives in Chicago with her family. She visits lots of schools each year to share her love of reading and her writing journey with kids and educators.
