NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
“I get to have the best job in the world—writing stories. And I get to work for the best bosses in the world—children.”
Sally is a New York Times best-selling author—and sometime performer. She is to blame for over 20 books, including How To Be A Baby, which the New York Times called “adorable, original, well-illustrated, and fabulous.” She has written many other books for children, including: Baby Wren, a 2017 Christopher Award Winner; Poor Doreen, a Bank Street College of Education Best Book of the Year; Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing, ECPA Devotional book of the year; and The Jesus Storybook Bible, an ALA Notable and Platinum Book which has sold over 2.5 million copies and is in over 34 languages. She is especially proud that Skip To The Loo My Darling which went straight to #1 on the potty charts. (Yes there is one.)
Sally recently performed in a twelve-city tour with Amy Grant and Ellie Holcombe in an Evening of Stories and Songs. She has appeared in New York City with Amy Grant and Ashley Cleveland in Story In The Round, an evening of story and songs; and at Carnegie Hall with The Getty’s in their Christmas Show.Born in Kampala, Uganda, raised in East, and West Africa and at a boarding school in the New Forest, England—Sally moved to the States in 1989 “just for a year or two”. She’s still here.
“My British accent makes it sound like I know what I’m talking about, so I’ve kept it.”
The first book Sally ever remembers reading all the way through was The Complete Nonsense by Edward Lear. Things have not been the same since.
Sally lives in Manhattan and enjoys dividing her time between the front half of her apartment and the back.
