ABOUT LAURA BYRD

  • Laura Byrd wrote her first picture book, “My Tummy Grumble,” in high school, but never considered writing professionally. Based on her first attempt, she believes that was a good thing. That all changed in 2005 when she joined the SCBWI, becoming a PAL member a few years later. She now writes picture books and young adult novels and has sold her work to Highlights and The Friend magazines.
    Laura has served as Co-Regional Advisor for SCBWI Oregon since June 2018, after several years of volunteering and a stint on the Advisory Committee.
    She has 5 children, 2 cats, 1 husband, and no room left on her bookshelves. Find her on Twitter and Instagram as @TheWriteByrd.
