About the Author
Author S.E. Schlosser has been telling stories since she was a child, when games of "let's pretend" quickly built themselves into full-length stories. A graduate of Houghton College, the Institute of Children's Literature, and Rutgers University, she also created and maintains AmericanFolklore.net, where she shares a wealth of stories from all 50 states, some dating back to the origins of America. Artist Paul Hoffman trained in painting and printmaking, with his first extensive illustration work on assignment in Egypt, drawing ancient wall reliefs for the University of Chicago. His work graces books of many genres--children's titles, textbooks, short story collections, natural history volumes, and numerous cookbooks. For the Globe Pequot Spooky series, he employed a scratchboard technique and an active imagination.
