About the author:
Barbora Holan Cowles was born in Ohio in 1945 of working parents. Her mother trained as an RN and her father was a night watchman and handyman. She was often bedridden during her early childhood and entertained herself by creating stories about her dolls and paper cutouts. "My parents indulged me as much as they were able and accepted my flights of fancy. I think my mother was especially entertained by the stories my dolls would tell her." Though her adult life was spent teaching and working in corporate settings, she nurtured her ability to imagine. Other stories lurk in her mind and she plans to bring them to print.

Joseph Robert Cowles was born in California in 1941. His father was a casting director in Hollywood's motion picture industry, and after the war years worked in the San Fernando Valley, selling tract houses to families of returning GIs. His mother worked in a bakery and as an office manager for a family-owned chain of grocery stores catering to movie stars, and later became one of "Walt's Girls": ladies with charming voices who operated the PBX switchboards at Disneyland. At an early age Joseph discovered his ability for drawing, a talent he has relied upon as an adult while designing every variety of printed item imaginable, from business cards to billboards.
