Michelle Nott is a bilingual, dual-nationality author who finds inspiration in her family, her travels and particularly in American and French literature, culture and art. Born in the United States, Nott has also lived in France and in Belgium. Michelle taught French (pre-K through university) and Creative Writing (high school) and published poetry for adults before focusing her attention on writing for children. She finds crafting picture books an ideal way to combine her love and respect for children, language and fine art. She strives to share this passion with readers of all ages. "Teddy Let's Go!" is Nott's third book for children and her debut picture book. She currently lives in North Carolina with her husband, two daughters and their rescue dog.
