Laurenne Sala, author of You Made Me a Mother, is a storyteller, poet, and writer of everything from television commercials to jokes for the stage to the occasional viral video. When she isn't writing her own essays and making people cry, Laurenne leads workshops that help others write their very personal stories. She loves blueberries, her cat named Cheddar, riding her bike along the beach, and being a mom. Laurenne lives with her husband and daughter in Los Angeles, where she likes to look at the ocean and wonder what is on the other side. Mike Malbrough is a creator of picture books, and a former graphic designer, comic book artist, performer, and teacher. He is the author-illustrator of his celebrated debut picture book, Marigold Bakes a Cake. Mike lives in Orange, New Jersey, with his wife, two adventurous kids, and a cat named Agnes.
"Malbrough's watercolor and digital illustrations bring warmth,
energy, and dimension to this celebration of fatherhood." --
