About the Author: Kelly J. Baptist is the author of several works for young readers. She won the 2015 We Need Diverse Books short story contest with The Beans and Rice Chronicles of Isaiah Dunn, which is included in the anthology, Flying Lessons and Other Stories. As a result of her work in an urban school district, Kelly felt compelled to continue Isaiah’s story with the novels Isaiah Dunn is My Hero and Isaiah Dunn Saves the Day for middle grade readers. Kelly’s additional works include the Sunshine State Award-winning picture book, The Electric Slide and Kai, and the novels The Swag is in the Socks and Eb & Flow. When she’s not writing, Kelly is usually thinking about new story ideas and dreaming of palm trees. She lives in Michigan with her five children.
