Author & Illustrator
Beth Vrabel

I am the author of the Cybils’-nominated Caleb and Kit, ILA award-winning A Blind Guide to Stinkville, JLG-selection A Blind Guide to Normal, The Reckless Club, and the Pack of Dorks series. I’ve received starred and positive trade reviews across the board for my novels and am active in school and library visits around the country.

I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania. In fourth grade, I won a short-story contest and promptly decided writing was what I was going to do with my life. Although my other plans—becoming a wolf biologist, a Yellowstone National Park ranger, and a professional roller skater—didn’t come to fruition, I stuck with the writing. I can’t clap to the beat nor be trusted around Nutella.

Author
Marsha Diane Arnold

Called a “born storyteller” by the media, Marsha Diane Arnold is the picture book author of 21 books, with over one million books sold. Her books have garnered honors from Best First Book by a New Author to Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library to Smithsonian Notable. Recent books include the bilingual Galápagos Girl and Lost. Found., both Junior Library Guild selections. Lost. Found. received three starred reviews and was illustrated by Caldecott Medal winner Matthew Cordell. 

Growing up on the Kansas prairies, Marsha lived in Northern California most of her life. Now she lives with her husband in Florida, near the Caloosahatchee River and her family. Besides creating stories, she loves scuba diving, hiking, traveling, gardening, and climbing trees.

Author
Jessie Oliveros

Jessie Oliveros grew up watching Kansas sunsets, and she’ll always have wild sunflowers and gold-tipped corn fields in her heart. She spent her college-life climbing mountains in Utah and striving for higher vistas. After a fulfilling career as a registered nurse, Jessie hung up her stethoscope to grow children and stories. These days you can find her in the Texas hill country with her husband and their four kids.

Author
Ronda Armitage

Ronda Armitage was born in New Zealand but moved to England with her family in 1974.Her husband, David, illustrated most of her earlier books including the Lighthouse Keeper series but she now works with a number of other talented illustrators. She probably became a writer because she always loved reading. Her first job was teaching young children so she read many wonderful books to them. Although she loves writing she often thinks of many other things to do before she begins work on a new book. A walk in the woods, some gardening, maybe ringing a friend. She is a procrastinator. Finally with a little snack, preferably of grapes or mangoes she will open her computer and write.
