About Abby Mathews

The Little Prince might tell you Abby Mathews is one of the few grown-ups who really does remember being a child, and her mother will tell you she's like Peter Pan and never really grew up.

Abby is finishing her first middle grades novel, Misshelved, a magical story about trying to fit in even when your family clearly doesn’t belong

She draws her inspiration from nearly a decade’s worth of pretending to be the adult in a 9th grade classroom and all those times she tried to hide her own amazingly embarrassing father as a kid.

She lives in Florida with her husband and 2 daughters, who are only now starting to realize that their mom is weird.
