Portrait of Lynn Reiser

Lynn Reiser was born in Charlotte, North Carolina. When she was in school, she preferred drawing pictures to writing. Many years later, she created her first picture book, Bedtime Cat, with no words. Then an editor convinced her to add words, and the book was published! Now when Reiser creates a book, she has fun making the words and pictures work together to tell the story.

Reiser is also a doctor and a professor at a university. Because she is so busy, she sometimes has to write and sketch when she is on a plane or in a train station. But Reiser enjoys having several careers and doing many things at once.


  • Reiser often gets story ideas while she is gardening or exercising.
  • She paints valentines and birthday cards for fun.
