Michelle Heidenrich Barnes is an award-winning children’s poet and anthologist, whose work appears in books, magazines, on plaques, and in greeting cards. Her creative challenge is to paint moments with words—coaxing out their natural musicality as they bounce around in her imagination.
Michelle lives in Florida, by way of New York, Boston, New Mexico, and Australia. Her home away from home is her blog Today's Little Ditty—a lively community of writers, teachers, librarians, and poetry-appreciators who gather to write, learn, and share the joy of poetry.
