Kate Klise lives and writes on her forty-acre farm in a valley north of Norwood, Missouri (population: 300-something), where, not long ago, a man at the post office asked her, “Do you make those stories and up out of your own head?” Indeed she does!
M. Sarah Klise draws and paints in her studio in Berkeley, California, where she lives with two cats. In addition to her work as an illustrator, Sarah Klise teaches drawing to children and adults in San Francisco’s Chinatown. Kate and Sarah are sisters who have previously collaborated on illustrated novels for children. Their most recent picture book, Why Do You Cry?, was published in 2006.
