Stephanie Mulligan

Stephanie Mulligan worked on the Lucky Catch, a lobster fishing tour boat, with Captain Tom Martin for eight summers. She wanted to capture the experience and remember it forever because each time she stepped on the boat was a new journey, and it never got old! After growing up in Otisfield, a beautiful village in western Maine, working for Captain Tom gave her the opportunity to meet people from all over the world who wanted to learn about lobstering! This was the perfect summer job combining the best of both worlds—education and the Maine outdoors.

She graduated from the University of Maine at Orono with her B.S. in Elementary Education and a concentration in English. Then she began writing her first book, How to Catch a Keeper, which illustrates these wonderful lobster excursions.

Stephanie lives in Lincoln, Maine, with her husband and their darling children.
