How to Meet the Author

Micheal has a great opportunity for your troop to read together, write letters to her, and then invite her to a future troop meeting to talk about anything the girls want to discuss about writing and her books.

  1. Purchase one of the books Zoey Lyndon’s Big Move to the Lou or Zoey Lyndon and the Sticky Finger Bandit and read it.
    Bonus: If reading Sticky Finger Bandit download this free teacher’s guide to help prompt conversation and activities throughout reading each chapter of the book.
  2. Email Micheal at to set up time for her to attend one of your troop meetings via Zoom, to discuss the writing process. Simply write in subject line “Im Interested – Troop ####”
  3. Once meeting is set up Micheal will provide you with a PO Box that the girls can write letters to her. She will then take the time to answer the letters during the meeting with your troop.

“I read this book with my Girl Scout troop and I LOVED IT! I moved schools when I was in 2nd grade and can understand how Zoey felt! I also loved that we got to meet the author over Zoom and ask her a ton of questions. She is amazing!”

A Little More About the Author

As mentioned above Micheal Anderson is a writer, blogger, and longtime Girl Scout supporter.

She is the author of Zoey Lyndon’s Big Move to the Lou, a children’s middle grade book that encourages Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). She understands the significance of representation and wanted to create a book where black and brown girls could see themselves reflected. Historically, girls are tracked away from science and math early in their education, which is why Micheal chooses to focus on science in her Zoey Lyndon series. She is a long time advocate for empowering girls and volunteered with organizations such as Girl Scouts and the Junior League for close to 10 years. She is currently an active member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), Jack & Jill Associate of St. Louis, and the Junior League of St. Louis. When she is not writing, she enjoys jazz, travel, and spending time with her family.

She looks forward to working with young girls and being able to offer an exciting opportunity to troops.You can contact her directly through her website or email Be sure to also follower her on Instagram @everythingmicheal
