Gretchen Kelley is the mother of four children—two teens and two tweens. Her years as a mom and a substitute teacher allow her to do one of her favorite things: spend lots of time hanging out with kids. After living in Louisville, Kentucky, Gretchen and her family moved to Abu Dhabi, where they now live during the school year. In the summers, they spend time in Rockport, MA, which was the inspiration for Charlie Burger’s hometown. When she’s not writing, Gretchen can be found screaming at soccer matches, planning her family’s next trip to a cool location, or running on the beach, thinking up some new story ideas. Superheroes Don't Eat Veggie Burgers is her first book.
