A little about Author Christy Hale:
"At age ten, I decided to become a writer and illustrator...Back then, my best friend and I acted out the books we loved. Soon we began writing and illustrating our own stories every day after school." Christy Hale has illustrated more than 30 books, having written some of those as well, which have received numerous awards. She currently resides in Palo Alto, and works as a writer, illustrator, designer, art director, and as an educator—offering programs at museums, schools, and libraries. She teaches an online course in Writing for Picture Books through the illustration department at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
