George Ella Lyon

Born and raised in the mountains of Kentucky, writer George Ella Lyon grew up with a love of poetry and music. Although she writes poems and essays, she is best known as an author of children’s picture books. She can often be found at elementary schools entertaining children with these warm-hearted stories, which typically deal with real-life experiences and issues.

George Ella has published two collections of poems; 14 picture books; three novels for young readers; an autobiography (A Wordful Child, part of the Richard Owen Meet-the Author series); Choices, a book of stories for adult new readers; and the novel With a Hammer for My Heart. Her work also is featured in the PBS series The United States of Poetry.
