Margaret Greanias is a children’s book author who writes stories with heart and humor.

Short bio: Margaret Greanias is a children’s book author who writes stories with heart and humor. She grew up in New York, Texas, and California, and now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, three children, and a fluffle of dust bunnies.

Still short, but slightly longer bio: Margaret wrote her first terrifically terrible book in fourth grade. From grade school through college, she suffered through English—she was especially bad at analyzing stories and writing essays. Then, during her very last year of college, she took a creative writing class and discovered she loved writing. Despite this, it wasn’t until her second child was born that she remembered her love of children’s books. She’s been writing ever since. She currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, three children, and a fluffle of dust bunnies.

“Greanias makes her debut with crackling dialogue in this story about being different.” Publishers Weekly

“Withrow presents Max and his family as colorful, mismatched, Where the Wild Things Are-style monsters. Despite their fearsome reputations, they’re more cuddly than scary, making this tale a treat for all ages.” Booklist
