Kerry Anna (Bassett) Stenke lives in Raleigh, NC with her husband and two editors (Klaus Dashiell, 7, and Wilhelmina Kate, 4). She has been a graphic designer forever, but has wanted to write--and publish--a book since she was seven years old (even longer than forever). Henry Bonk Doodle was created on a Saturday when she was trying to think of something to do with her kids. She ended up working on it outside in a plastic rocking chair and finished the first draft several weeks afterward. Henry must have been living in her head somewhere, because he jumped right out and onto the page. He may have some other life lessons to learn in 2017!
