Laura Sassi, AUthor

I have a passion for telling stories in prose and rhyme. I’ve been a teacher, homeschool mom, children’s ministry director, historic museum interpreter, and more. I write from my home in New Jersey where I live with my husband, two children, and a black cockapoo named Sophie. I find special joy in sharing my love of reading and writing with the next generation at school visits and other book events!

Gabi Murphy, Illustrator

I have been a freelance artist for over 35 years and have spent many happy hours creating lots of cute, fluffy characters. I have recently studied acrylic and oil painting and have also discovered an interest in digital art. Everything and anything can trigger a scribble session, but color is my greatest inspiration.
