Mindy MacDonald graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in kinesiology. But it wasn't until she took a job at a local Christian bookstore that she discovered her passion for books. Mindy's gift for storytelling was further cultivated when she worked as an elementary school education assistant, and she has since taken classes in writing children's literature. Mindy and her husband are motivated by bringing God glory through their writing and musical talents. They make their home in New Jersey with their two cats, Jack and Charlie.
