Alicia Hogan Murphy was 8 years old when she decided that she would one day be a children's author. Her dream came true in 2015 with the publication of her debut picture book, The Muddy Foot Prince. She travels to elementary schools all over the United States, sharing her stories (Bear Hugs and Sock Bugs was published in 2016), and speaking to kids about the magic of reading, writing and believing in their dreams. When she isn't writing or visiting schools, Alicia enjoys baking, eating peanut butter, and being a mom.
