Shelley Johannes is the author-illustrator of the Beatrice Zinker, Upside Down Thinker chapter book series. Before writing full-time, she spent ten years in architecture, where she fell in love with felt-tip pens, tracing paper, and the greatness of black turtlenecks. She's currently working on her picture book debut, MORE THAN SUNNY, coming from Abrams in Spring 2021. Shelley and her family live in Michigan with two adorable birds who remind them to notice the little things each day.
