Author
Children's books surround Nancy Kelly Allen. That's how she likes it! Her profession as a primary school librarian together with her evening ritual of writing/pondering her next children's story provides the perfect creative atmosphere. She has a Master's degree in Education from Morehead State University and a Master's in Library Science from the University of Kentucky. Nancy lives in Kentucky, in the same log cabin in which she was raised. She shares this home with her husband Larry and two canine writer assistants, Pippin and Harrietta.

Illustrator
When other little girls were playing with Barbies, Elizabeth Driessen was drawing them (along with horses, trees and whatever else was around). A full-time artist, Elizabeth (Betty) works as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator. Betty is a member of the Appleton Arts Center and does volunteer art/calligraphy for the American Cancer Society. She and her husband Richard delight in taking the top off the Jeep Wrangler in the summer and traveling the countryside.
