Shelley lives in Indiana with her Rhode Island born kids and husband. When Shelley is not writing or cleaning up after little people, she’s probably thinking about writing (or about how she should be cleaning). Shelley has known from a young age that she wanted to write picture books, but she insisted on going to college for unrelated things. She vows not to get sidetracked again. Not So Scary Jerry is her first picture book. The Masterpiece is her second. Shelley is represented by Victoria Selvaggio of The Jennifer De Chiara Literary Agency.
Kathi Green Nixon has been doodling and drawing since she was a little girl, thanks to her dad who passed on his love of art and all things creative. After working as a graphic designer for 32 years, she now returns to her drawing and painting roots. Having lived in Indiana all of her life, Kathi enjoys spending time with her family and beloved (and high maintenance) dog, Layla. In the evenings, Kathi enjoys watching the sun set over her neighbor's buffalo farm. The Masterpiece is Kathi's first picture book.
