Margaret Kingsbury

When she’s not writing BR posts, short stories, poems, novels, ANYTHING—or reading—she’s either chasing her book-eating baby or ogling books in the giant used bookstore she works at (or some other stray job she’s acquired). She and her family live in Nashville, TN and are the proud owners of many, many books. Follow her on Instagram @areaderlymom or @babylibrarians, and follow her kid lit reviews on babylibrarians.com.
