William Ritter is an Oregon educator and author of the bestselling Jackaby series. He is the proud father of the two bravest boys in the Wild Wood, and husband to the indomitable Queen of the Deep Dark.

Jillian Torassa is a nerdy Oregonian who loves stories. Books, movies, TV—anything that tells a funny, real, touching tale is worth her time. Anyone’s time, really. She’s been writing since she learned how. Her very first book was about a yellow Labrador named Ceilia who fell down a worm hole into a land of talking dogs. It was illustrated with Lisa Frank stickers, and the spelling was so horrendous, it didn’t even resemble English. She’s since honed her talent, and now she’s writing stories that she loves, and she hopes you will love, too.
