Nancy Churnin, the theater critic for The Dallas Morning News, made her picture book debut with The William Hoy Story, How a Deaf Baseball Player Changed the Game in March 2016. Her next non-fiction picture book, Manjhi Moves a Mountain will be published Sept. 1, 2017. She has three non-fiction picture book biographies coming out in 2018: Charlie Makes His Shot, How Charlie Sifford Broke the Color Barrier in Golf  Jan. 1, 2018; Irving Berlin, The Immigrant Boy Who Made America Sing in spring and The Princess and the First Christmas Tree in September. A New York City native, some of Nancy's happiest memories of growing up are getting the "big kid" library card, which meant she could take out as many books as she wanted at a time, and going to Broadway shows with her cousin Bill. She graduated from Harvard University cum laude and has a masters in journalism from Columbia University. She is raising four boys and two cats with her husband, Dallas Morning News arts writer Michael Granberry.
