Marty Kelley has written and illustrated many published children’s books, including Fall Is Not Easy, Almost Everybody Farts, and the Molly Mac chapter book series. Pugnapped, his first chapter book/graphic novel hybrid, is due out in November 2021. His career as an artist started when he began drawing historically accurate pictures of spaceships dropping bombs on dinosaurs. When he started going to school, he found even more artistic fulfillment in creating advanced character studies of his teacher, Mean Mrs. Keane. By the time he was a freshman in high school, he had a regular comic strip published in the local town paper. After high school, he attended The School of the Museum of Fine Arts to become an animator. Shortly after art school, he had a career crisis and moved to Florida, where he went back to school and got his degree in elementary education. He taught second grade for several years before making the difficult decision to pursue writing and illustrating full time. Each school year, Marty visits an average of 75–80 schools all over the country to talk about writing and illustrating books. He has presented to hundreds of thousands of students over the past two decades. And it’s still fun and exciting! Visit Marty online at www.martykelley.com.
