Heather Mackey is the author of Dreamwood (Putnam, 2014), a middle-grade fantasy selected by the Children's Book Committee as one of its best children's books of 2014. Her next book, The Shadow Clock, is another middle grade, also with Putnam.

She has an MFA in fiction writing from the University of Arizona, where she taught fiction workshops for undergraduates. Before that, she spent years as an award-winning journalist and editor of nonfiction. She lives in Berkeley with her family and is obsessed with finding ways to stay creative and productive amid work deadlines and soccer practices.
