About Me

Cynthia Mackey, children’s author

I’m a children’s writer and nature program educator living in Victoria, B.C. My debut picture book in traditional publishing, IF A BUMBLEBEE LANDS ON YOUR TOE, is forthcoming with Yeehoo Press in 2024. I’ve published two children’s books, KATIE SHAEFFER PANCAKE MAKER (2017) and THE LULLABY MONSTERS (2020). I’m grateful to have been mentored by Canadian picture book author, Jean E. Pendziwol. My poems are published in the Dirigible Balloon and Little Thoughts Press, Hit the Road Issue. My fiction picture book manuscript, ARIA made the list of honourable mentions in Mindy Alyse Wise’s #PB Party in 2022. I’m a member of SCBWI Canada West, CANSCAIP, and Storyteller Academy. I’m part of Kids Book Crew and Picture Books, Eh?
