Author typing on a green typewriter.

Megan Benedict is a children’s book author and typewriter poet. She loves getting lost in all forms of fantastic stories, and she has been known to hide in closets and bathrooms to finish reading "just one" more chapter.


Megan holds an MFA in Writing for Children & Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts. Her debut picture book Great Gusts: Winds of the World and the Science Behind Them earned a starred review from Booklist. Sea Wolves: Keepers of the Rainforest will be released in July of 2024. A member of Typewriter Rodeo, her poetry has been published in Bravery Magazine and the Hyacinth Review.


Megan lives with her family in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.

These are a few of my favorite things...
