Linda Vander Heyden

Author Linda Vander Heyden has always loved quiet country and woodlands. She was inspired to write Mr. McGinty’s Monarchs after finding the milkweed on her road had been mowed and many caterpillars clinging to the dying plants. She hopes her story will inspire others to protect and save these remarkable butterflies. Linda lives in Wisconsin with her husband, two dogs, two cats, and two horses.
