Cory McCarthy [he/they] is the acclaimed, bestselling author of five released children's books and just as many forthcoming titles. His books have been translated into several languages and have appeared on the Bank Street, Barnes and Noble, Book Riot, and Tor best books list, as well the Amelia Bloomer list of feminist children's fiction. Their upcoming titles include a middle grade trilogy and nonfiction picture book. They teach at Vermont College of Fine Arts and, like many of their characters, are a member of the LGBTQ+ community.
