Lindsey Stoddard was born and raised in Vermont. She taught middle school English in New York City for ten years and received her MFA in Creative Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts. Her debut middle grade novel, JUST LIKE JACKIE, was an Indies Introduce and an Indies Next Top 10 pick for Winter ’17-18, a Junior Library Selection, and is on the 2019 Dorothy Canfield Fisher List. Her second novel, RIGHT AS RAIN, is a Junior Library Guild selection, and the New York Times quotes that the novel’s “exploration of grief’s grip on a family rings true and tender.” Stoddard moved back to Vermont in 2018 and now resides in Shelburne with her husband and two children.
