Lisa Varchol Perron

Children's Book Writer


Lisa Varchol Perron

I'm an active member of SCBWI, the 12x12 Picture Book Writing Challenge, and Poets' Garage, a community of children's poets. My work has appeared in Highlights Hello, The Caterpillar, and The School Magazine.

In addition to writing picture books, children's poetry, and middle grade novels, I'm a mom to two kids who add a little sparkle to every day, literally (glitter, glitter everywhere!) 

I also work as a psychotherapist, and I'm fascinated by the power of language in our lives!

(This is a picture of me in 2nd grade, when my favorite books were Amelia Bedelia,  Encyclopedia Brown, and the Choose Your Own Adventure series.)
