     Heather Macht's always had a niche for storytelling.  Ever since she was a young girl, she'd spend her free time writing imaginative stories for friends and family. 

     In the third grade, Macht recalls often getting scolded for turning her English and Science class's writing assignments into creative stories.  Even though her teachers often frowned at her "unnecessary" imagination, her classmates enjoyed and encouraged her writings.    

     As an adult, her passion for writing and her imagination has grown and taken off.  Macht is the author of 15 books including The Mutant Critter Sitter, a six-book chapter book series featuring #girlpower, responsibility, spliced mutant creations, and science-filled fun! (ABDO, 2024), The Woodlot Monster Mysteries, a six-book chapter book series featuring less-common monsters and promoting #girlpower, problem solving, and teamwork (ABDO, 2023), Rex the...We-Don't-Know (Pelican, 2020), The Ant Farm Escape! (Pelican, 2019), and You May Just Be a Dinosaur (Pelican, 2015)!

      Macht has a degree in Fine Arts, her other passion, is the creator and owner of, and is also an active member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. In 2021, Macht interned at a small publishing press as a Junior Editor to learn more about the inner workings of publishing.

  She's happily married and currently resides in Florida.   When she's not writing, Macht enjoys painting, reading poetry, watching scary movies, and spending time with her husband and children.
