Lindsay H. Metcalf grew up on a Kansas farm, flew the coop for a career in the city, and migrated home to write downwind of the neighborhood cattle. Lindsay has three forthcoming nonfiction picture books. She is the author of Beatrix Potter, Scientist (illustrated by Junyi Wu, Albert Whitman & Company, September 2020) and Farmers Unite! Planting a Protest for Fair Prices (Calkins Creek, November 2020). She is a co-editor, along with Keila V. Dawson and Jeanette Bradley, of No Voice Too Small: Fourteen Young Americans Making History (illustrated by Jeanette Bradley, Charlesbridge, September 2020).

An experienced journalist, Lindsay has covered a variety of change-makers as a reporter, editor, and columnist for The Kansas City Star and other news outlets. She belongs to the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and The Soaring ‘20s, a collective of debut picture-book authors and illustrators. At home, she plays the ukulele and sings made-up pop-song parodies, embarrassing her husband, two sons, two old cats, and snoring Cavalier King Charles puppy.
