William Joyce does a lot of stuff--films, apps, Olympic curling--but children's books are his true bailiwick ("The Numberlys"; "The Man in the Moon"; "Nicholas St. North and the Battle of the Nightmare King"; "A Bean, A Stalk, and a Boy Named Jack"; and the #1 "New York Times" bestselling "The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore", which is also an Academy Award-winning short film, to name a few). He lives with his family in Shreveport, Louisiana.
