Meet the Author

Paul Ingram has been a bookseller ever since he has been old enough to have a grownup job. Since 1989 he has worked at Prairie Lights Bookstore, doing what he can to influence the literary taste of the Iowa City community through radio, video, book clubs, book festivals, reviews, and of course, person-to-person. This has been no small job in a town where even the baristas carry PhD's in English. In his free time he reads and listens to highbrow classical music. He is married and deeply in love with his three grandchildren. He began creating rhymes before he could crawl.
Julia Anderson-Miller studied drawing, painting, and art history at Moorhead State University, the University of Minnesota, and Summer School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
