Stephanie Lisa Tara discovered the power of verse at an early age. Her daughter Madeline is equally thrilled by its wonderful whimsy and bouncing lyrical notes. A former ad copywriter, Stephanie truly appreciates the wit and wisdom of words. Having lived extensively on both US coasts and in western Europe, she is ever inspired by the universal language of storytelling and its ability to teach and entertain children and parents alike. The Taras reside in beautiful northern California, living between redwood trees and the sea. Visit her website at www.StephanieLisaTara.com. Lee Edward Fodi has been writing and illustrating stories about magic, monsters, and mystery for as long as he can remember. Growing up on a farm, he had many horrible chores, such as feeding chickens, collecting eggs, and cleaning the henhouse all of which meant an epic battle each and every day with the farmyard rooster. Thankfully, the young author was one day able to fly the coop all together. He stumbled upon the secret Land of Een and now he is most pleased to have the official title as chronicler of the adventures of Kendra Kandlestar. When he is not chronicling the land between here and there, "Mr. Wiz" (as he is so often called) spends his time speaking at schools and helping kids sculpt their own stories through writing workshops. He lives in Vancouver, Canada, and enjoys traveling to distant and exotic lands, where he can feel like he has slipped through the cracks of time and into the days of ancient history.
