Molly Blaisdell is a dash of fun, mixed in with some smart cookie and a splash of capable. She wrote her first picture book in high school and has been dreaming up new ones ever since. When Molly’s not writing, she is asking questions and planning the next cool place she wants to explore. If she sees the moon in the daytime, she thinks she’s lucky. She is the author of 30 books for kids.

Molly is the mom of four and lives in College Station, Texas with her college sweetheart Tim and two cats – Mr.Tibs and Mr. Oreo.

Molly inspires writers with her weekly blog, Seize the Day.

Molly writes children’s nonfiction, picture books, and fiction, and she also writes fiction for teens and adults as Cece Barlow. See more about her Cece Barlow writing at
