• Kellie DuBay Gillis writes picture books and middle grade. She is an environmental scientist and senior communications specialist. (This is a fancy way of saying she turns technical information into more understandable words and pictures about protecting the environment. Some of her favorite examples are interpretative park signs in Michigan.) She lives outside of Cleveland in Fairview Park, Ohio, with her husband, two kids, a pandemic puppy, and a vintage purple tandem. She’s currently serving as the SCBWI Ohio North Regional Advisor. She is represented by Ana Crespo at East West Literary Agency.
