Diane Zahler - Author

Diane Zahler is the author of four middle-grade fairy-tale retellings: The Thirteenth Princess, A True Princess, Princess of the Wild Swans, and Sleeping Beauty's Daughters. She has also written two nonfiction books for older readers, The Black Death and Than Shwe's Burma, and a nearly infinite quantity of textbook materials for elementary and high school students. She's made her home in Seattle, Morgantown, Ithaca, Solana Beach, Manhattan, the Bronx, and Belgium, but now lives with her husband and dog in an old farmhouse in the Hudson Valley. She really likes baking - and eating what she bakes. Mina Price is an American illustrator and designer. She has a particular affinity for character design and lifestyle illustration, or basically any project that allows her to draw interesting people in cool outfits. She enjoys finding ways to seamlessly marry traditional and digital art, going from scanner to Photoshop to printer to paint and back again. Mina graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art with a BFA in Illustration. Now she is a freelance illustrator and designer who does everything from editorial to publishing work and all that's in between. She's done work with The Boston Globe, OC Weekly, Muzzy Lane Software, St. Martin's Press, The Dallas Observer, and Sourcebooks. When she is not drawing, Mina can frequently be found baking things with lots of sugar or getting way too emotional over a good book.
