Favorite Animals: Rabbits, dogs, imaginary kittens, baby goats, and baby dragons.


Favorite Time of Year: Autumn! Halloween...Thanksgiving...leaves...pumpkins...sweaters.


Favorite Books: Too hard to choose! Often the last one I read.


Fun Facts: My second book is dedicated to an imaginary cat. I have no TV or Internet in my home. My parents couldn’t agree on a middle name for me, so I never got one.

More about Ingrid ...


Perhaps it was the Lake Champlain monster that started it all. Born in northern New York, on May 1st, 1970, my first home was a stone's throw from the waters of Lake Champlain and its legendary prehistoric sea monster, Champ. From the very start, life was steeped in the lure of the fantastic, of tall tales and big ideas.


When I was six, my family moved to Colorado. My father drove up into the mountains every day to teach in a one-room school house in the tiny mountain town of Gold Hill. While visiting Gold Hill and places like it, I discovered that small things and small places can be just as interesting and extraordinary as big noisy ones. Even now, I'm drawn to tiny towns and quiet, quirky places.


I was a nervous child. I was afraid there might be piranhas in puddles after rainstorms, and I was certain there were cactus needles everywhere, ready to jump out at me. I dealt with my fears and anxieties by making up stories and using my imagination. Eventually, I started writing some of my stories down. That’s how I became a writer.


Today, I still live in the west. When I’m not writing, you can probably find me in a movie theater, at the library, or walking around my favorite lakes and ponds.
