Alexis, her husband, and three children live in Newton, MA. Flavia Weedn is a prolific award-winning artist and illustrator. She has written and illustrated 17 books, including 10 for children's , and her lines of greeting cards, translated into many different languages, are sent by over 18 million people each year.
