Joy McCullough is not outdoorsy and she has a terrible sense of direction. She did climb a Guatemalan volcano one time, and she has hiked through Discovery Park. But she much prefers to stay inside, writing books and plays from her home in the Seattle area, where she lives with her husband and two children. She is the author of the middle grade novels Across the Pond and A Field Guide to Getting Lost. Her debut novel Blood Water Paint was long-listed for the National Book Award and was a William C. Morris Debut Award Finalist. Visit her at JoyMcCullough.com.
