Children's book Author

A.M. Wild is a white, queer, nonbinary children’s book author who believes that books are places where we can collectively hope and heal. Each project they work on is a unique reflection of the world as they see it or dream it could be.


Their debut title, Not He Or She, I'm Me, a picture book for 3-6 year olds about a day in the life of a nonbinary child, was released by Henry Holt Books for Young Readers in 2023, received three starred reviews, was named one of the most empowering picture books of the year by Kirkus, and was awarded a Stonewall Honor.


Their second picture book, Mama, Zaza, and Me was acquired by Henry Holt Books for Young readers and will be released in 2026.

When not writing, you can find A.M. curled up with a book, a plate of chocolate chip cookies, and a  bottle of allergy pills. You can learn more about A.M. by subscribing to their newsletter below.
