Author Biography

Erik MacDonald is a writer, musician, and a retired music industry executive who developed his insightful imagination at an early age. Earning high marks on his written material in school he was also reading at a high level devouring the classics. It was much later that he wrote his first fiction book Truth loosely based on his long career at a major record label. Erik is an acclaimed home chef & grill master, guitar aficionado, jazz enthusiast, fish keeper, classic movie buff and speaks cat. You will most likely find him at home keeping his wife Teresa fed, warm and entertained. Sara Murtas is a young illustrator and children book's fanatic from Italy. Born in 1994, she's always had a passion for reading, even before she could actually do so (several childhood pictures portray her at 2 years old, holding a book, pretending to read to her dolls and toys). It didn't take long to realize that her dream job would have to incorporate her two biggest passions: books and drawing. Other things that make Sara happy are food (particularly pizza), cats and dogs, children, nature, deep conversations and good naps.
