Sally Lloyd-Jones is a British-born children’s book writer who moved to the States in 1989 “just for a year.” She’s still here.
Born in Kampala, Uganda, raised in East, and West Africa and at a boarding school in the New Forest, the first book she ever remembers reading all the way through was The Complete Nonsense by Edward Lear. Things have never been the same since.
She has written many books for children including the critically acclaimed New York Times Bestseller How To Be A Baby… By Me, The Big Sister, one of only six children’s titles selected by The New York Times as Notable for 2007; and also the book parents and children, pastors as well as theologians are talking about, and Christianity Today’s children’s Bible Storybook of choice, The Jesus Storybook Bible—Every Story Whispers His Name. Sally says, “I wrote this book so children could know that God loves them—with a Never Stopping, Never Giving Up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love.”
She lives in Manhattan and likes to divide her time between the front half of her apartment and the back.
