Liesl Shurtliff

Liesl grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah, and has spent many magical days and nights in the woods. For better or worse, she has never come in contact with a wolf. Before she became a writer, Liesl graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in music, dance, and theater. Her first book, Rump: The True Story of Rumpelstiltskin, was named to nine state award lists and won an IRA Children’s Book Award, as well as earning a starred review from Kirkus, proclaiming it “as good as gold.” Her second book, Jack: The True Story of Jack and the Beanstalk, was also a hit with both critics and kids. She lives in Chicago with her family, where she continues to spin fairy tales.
