About Nicholas Solis
Nicholas Solis has been writing all of his life, starting with knock off Encyclopedia Brown mysteries and oddly deep poetry for an 8 year old. Since then he’s continued to write picture books, travel blogs, teaching blogs, middle grade novels, and poetry about farts (decidedly less deep). In 2018, he was the recipient of the Walter Dean Myers Grant from We Need Diverse Books.
Nick is also an award winning elementary teacher with a Master of Arts degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Texas and a Master of Arts degree in Educational Administration from Concordia University. He has traveled the world and taught students in Tanzania, India, and Morocco. From all of his travels he has learned one important lesson, that no matter the circumstances, kids are kids. When he’s not traveling, he enjoys spending time with his wife and dogs in Austin, Texas.
He is an active member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and of 12X12. He is also a writing fellow at The Writing Barn.
