Michelle Houts is the award-winning author of several middle-grade novels, picture books, and biographies for young readers including Winterfrost, which was a 2014 Bank Street Best Book and Junior Library Guild selection, and The Beef Princess of Practical County, which was awarded the 2010 IRA Children’s Book Award. She lives, works, and plays on a farm in western Ohio, where she is restoring a one-room schoolhouse.
