Helen Holder
Author @www.foxpointepublishing.com/author-helen-holder
My childhood ambition was to be a teacher, an author, and an artist. I spent 34 years in the first grade (33 of them as a teacher.) Since retiring from teaching, I write children’s stories and record the doings of the Ladies Floral Club and Friends of the Creche as the secretary for each group. I also do a little illustrating. Other activities include origami, bookmaking, crocheting, traveling to visit 11 grandchildren and collecting nativity scenes. During the Christmas season, more than 900 nativity scenes take over the house and we become a tourist destination. I live in Austin, MN with my husband Bill, and a few very hardy plants.
Kathryn Sullivan
Author @kathrynsullivan.com
Kathryn Sullivan is the author of award-winning young adult fantasies The Crystal Throne and Agents, Adepts & Apprentices. Any place and any object is at risk of appearing in her stories – the river bluffs surrounding Winona, MN, where she lives, can become the windswept cliffs of an alien planet or the deep mysterious woods of a fantasy tale. She is owned by a large cockatoo, who graciously allows her to write about other animals, as well as birdlike aliens.
