“Simply put…Ann is wonderful. And so are her books!” –Brian Gehrlein, Author Spotlight

Ann Ingalls (anningallswrites.com) passes the day exaggerating (writing fiction) or telling the truth (writing nonfiction). Ann has written over sixty books for young readers. PENCIL: A STORY WITH A POINT! made the Banks Street Best Books list of 2020. J IS FOR JAZZ won the 2015 Annual American Graphic Design Award and the Ella Fitzgerald Foundation’s “A Book Just for Me!”  LITTLE PIANO GIRL also won the Ella Fitzgerald Foundation’s “A Book Just for Me!” JOURNEY WITH JESUS, AN EASTER STORY (Paraclete Press) was released in January of 2024, and A IS FOR AUSTRALIA! (Familius) will come out in May. Two more books are scheduled for release in 2025. 

When given the choice between educating children or entertaining them with her writing, Ann chooses to do both. Before she was a children’s writer, Ann taught elementary and special education in public and private schools. Ann lives in Kansas City, Missouri with her husband Winston and two lucky black cats.
