“Thanks so much for visiting with us . . .you treated the kiddos as if they were the most important people with whom you could spend your time. . .” Kathryn Ney, Iowa Community School

A snippet of a family story transformed Kirby Larson (kirbylarson.com) from history-phobe to history fanatic; her debut historical novel, Hattie Big Sky, earned a Newbery Honor. She’s pursued her passion for historical fiction with titles such as Hattie Ever After, Duke, Dash, Liberty, and Code Word Courage and combined her love for both history and mystery in Audacity Jones to the Rescue, and Audacity Jones Steals the Show. Ironically, the next two books for this history lover are contemporary fiction, including the second title in the Shermy and Shake series, Shermy and Shake: The Not-So-Nice Neighbor and Gut Reaction, which is co-written with her daughter Quinn Wyatt. She lives in Kenmore Washington with her husband Neil and very naughty dog Raleigh.
