Author Bio

Lucy Hayes loves learning. She says she loves to learn about anything, but she specifically loves science and math. She has a  B.S. in Industrial Engineering and is currently working as a high school physics teacher. (She credits her decision to teach to the wonderful teachers in her life). When asking one of her students how she should describe herself, her student replied "weird." Lucy could sense from the tone it was a compliment and has decided to go with it!


Srimalie Bassani lives and works in Mantova, Italy. Her mother has always encouraged her artistic expression, and she is the inspiration for her passion. Her work is full of surprises. She always tries to diversify her style based on every story she illustrates. It's almost impossible to remove her from her writing desk, where she keeps a stack of books and teacups of many colors.
