Hailing from a small town in Michigan, Heather Macht's family moved to Florida soon after she was born, seeking the warmer climate. When Macht was a child, her father would make up stories and draw cartoons to amuse her and her two brothers. She attributes her artistic creativity to these special times from her childhood. Macht's imagination continued to develop, and she wrote her first book-about skate-boarding dinosaurs who wore sunglasses-in the third grade. Following her creative instincts, Macht attended Florida State College at Jacksonville and earned her associate of arts degree in fine arts. She is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators and the North Eastern SCBWI Critique Group. In order to support her goals, Macht has held jobs in various industries, including information technology. In these fields she earned numerous awards for her hard work and skill. With support and encouragement from her husband, Macht left these jobs behind in pursuit of her true dream, being a writer. This full-time mom spends her days writing and taking care of her son, Hunter, her inspiration for completing this book. Macht, her husband, and her son reside in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. Hunter has a dinosaur-themed room.
