Steve Bjorkman was born in the car on the way to Murphy Memorial Hospital in Whittier, CA, and has diligently tried to not miss a deadline ever since. There isn’t a time he hasn't been doodling and experimenting with various forms of art. Steve started with scraps of paper, moved on to church bulletins, then homework, spilling India ink on the wool carpet along the way. His sixth grade teacher told him, “Quit drawing in class, Stevie, that’ll never get you anywhere.” Geographically, she was right, Steve still lives in Southern California. However, he's been fortunate enough to illustrate for greeting cards, consumer products, ads, magazine articles and am closing in on one hundred children’s picture books.

Ruth McNally Barshaw writes and illustrates the Ellie McDoodle Diaries and has a few more book projects up her sleeve. She takes a sketch-journal pretty much everywhere (just like her Ellie character) -- the first one was a gift from her art teacher in high school. Ruth lives in the palm of Michigan with her husband, Charlie (also a writer), and the youngest of their four kids. The other kids are grown and on their own but visit often with the grandkids. All in all, Ruth feels incredibly lucky, most of the time.
