About the Author

Suzanne Garbe is the author of several nonfiction children's books. When not writing, Suzanne works with nonprofit organizations working to reduce poverty in communities around Minnesota. In 2013, she volunteered with the team that put together the largest Lite-Brite picture in history. Her jeans are still splattered with the extra strong glue they used to keep the Lite-Brite pegs in place. Nadia Higgins is the author of more than 100 books for children and young adults. She has written about everything from ants to zombies, with many science topics in between. Nadia also loves to sing, especially in the car with her kids. She lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota. From jellybeans to strange snakes, Alicia Klepeis loves to research fun and out-of-the-ordinary topics that make nonfiction exciting for readers. Alicia Klepeis began her career at the National Geographic Society. Alicia's travels have taken her from Singapore to Sydney to Sumbawa. Everywhere she goes she samples the local ice cream, gum, and candy options. Alicia has written several books and magazine articles for many markets, and is currently working on several nonfiction projects on international food, cool inventions, and world cultures. She lives with her family in upstate New York. Chris lives in Danvers, Massachusetts, in the neighborhood where the Salem Witch Trials occurred. He lives there with his wife, daughter, son, and two cats, Molly and Murray, and enjoys spending time with his family. When Chris is not writing, he is busy teaching middle school students in Natick, Massachusetts, reading, playing guitar, or learning more about his favorite subject, American history. Lindsy O'Brien is owner and Executive Editor at Red Step Press in Duluth, Minnesota. She has a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Minnesota State University, Mankato. She has published nonfiction, short fiction, and poetry both locally and nationally. Tim O'Shei is the author of more than 60 nonfiction books for kids and teens. He's also a teacher, sports and entertainment journalist, and the founder of Live! Starring ... You!, a program where students interview people in the spotlight. He regularly visits schools around the country, teaching workshops and spreading his motto, Write for your dreams. He's been featured on national television, including an appearance on the Travel Channel's Mysteries at the Museum. Tim is a native of Buffalo, New York, where he lives with his wife and three children.
