Dandi Daley Mackall won her first writing contest as a 10-year-old tomboy. Her 50 words on “Why I Want to Be Batboy for the Kansas City A’s” won first place, but the team wouldn’t let a girl be batboy. It was her first taste of rejection.
Since then, Dandi has become an award-winning author of about 400 books for children and grown-ups, with sales of 4 million in 22 countries. She writes for every age group, believing that her responsibility is to write out what God writes into her. Sometimes that message is more “overt” than other times, but the same heart writes each book, resulting in work that is acclaimed in both BEA and CBA. However, Dandi feels most at home in CBA, where she can freely declare God’s love through Jesus Christ. She’s taught writing at Central Oklahoma University, Bethany University, and Ashland University in Ohio. She was an instructor with the Institute of Children’s Literature. She was a missionary behind the Iron Curtain, living on the border of Poland and Czechoslovakia. Her articles can be found in a variety of magazines, including Today’s Woman, Chicken Soup for the Kid’s Soul, Family Circle, Today’s Christian Woman, Western Horseman, Moody Monthly, Christianity Today, Parenting, Marriage Partnership, Worldwide Challenge, Guidepost, Power for Living, Brio, and others. She’s held a humorist column and served as a freelance editor. She’s a frequent guest on radio talk shows, has hosted over 200 radio phone-in programs, and made dozens of appearances on TV, including ABC, NBC, and CBS. Dandi conducts writing assemblies and workshops across the U.S. and keynotes at conferences and Young Author events. She writes from rural Ohio with husband, Joe, children, Katy, Jen, and Dan, and a host of dogs, cats, and horses. And she considers herself blessed for having the best job in the world!
