B.B. Swann is a mother of three young adults, a wife (of another big kid but don’t tell him she said that), and a 27 year veteran elementary teacher. She has all the age groups covered and draws on their influence when writing her books. Picture book, young adult, new adult, and beyond, they all have one thing in common—life experiences, both the good and the challenging.


She graduated from Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, IL with her Bachelors of Ed. in Early Childhood Education, then left the corn capital to receive her Masters of Ed. in Language and Literacy from National Louis University, in Chicago.


While she eagerly awaits grandkids, (Ahem! Are her kids reading this?) she is owned by three cats, one granddog, and one sweet grandkitty.

In 2020--because why not start something new during a global pandemic--she became a literary agent at The Purcell Agency and now represents some of the world's most incredible authors, many of whom also have  numerous furry overlords and small two-legged dictators running their households.


Most nights you can find her reading or writing into the wee hours. She believes in the almighty power of caffeine and battling old age with purple hair and plenty of sarcasm.
