Blake A. Hoena grew up in central Wisconsin, where he wrote stories about robots conquering the moon and trolls lumbering around the woods behind his parents house. He now lives in Minnesota and continues to write about fun things like space aliens and superheroes. Blake has written more than fifty chapter books and graphic novels for children. After I graduated in 2014, I decided to stay in Lincoln (in the United Kingdom), and I now work from my home studio surrounded by books and my two cats. I can normally be found with a pencil in one hand and a cup of tea in the other. When I'm not illustrating, I love to bake and garden. I am lucky enough to live right next to the lovely canal in Lincoln, where I often take short walks in the sunshine.
