About the Authors
Iris Pearson is a Television and Film Production Accountant. She works with a group of former Disney Animators who illustrated the book. Iris has worked on television shows and films for ABC, Disney, Universal Pictures, HBO and the Travel Channel. Co-writer, Mike Merrill is a Certified Public Accountant with a Masters in Business Administration. Most importantly, Mike gladly helps support Lady (and all her friends’) daily food supply – that’s a lot of nuts! Together, Iris and Mike raised 5 baby squirrels. In spending so much time with the squirrels, Iris and Mike discovered each had a very individual and distinct personality. Each of
the upcoming books in the series is about a different squirrel and his or her very unique traits and issues. Iris and Mike hope that children and parents will find these stories entertaining and that the book is helpful to those who may have had experiences similar to those of the squirrels. Iris and Mike have 4 additional stories about Lady and her friends in development.
