About the Author
W.H. Beck is both an author of children's books and a librarian. She grew up in Wisconsin, the oldest of four. As a kid, her dad always teased that she would be a librarian someday. She read all the time—walking home from school, while brushing her teeth, under the table at dinnertime, and under the covers at night. And, sure enough, after earning an elementary teaching degree from the University of Wisconsin, she went on to get a masters degree in information studies from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
She still lives and reads in Wisconsin and shares a home and books with her husband, two sons, and a big black dog. Malcolm at Midnight is her first novel.
Brian Lies is the award-winning author-illustrator of the New York Times bestsellers Bats at the Beach, Bats at the Library, and Bats at the Ballgame
