Gnat & Corky books are all hand painted with watercolor by Natalie Sorrentino (Gnat) and each story is developed and created by Courtney (Corky), who interviews the children. Kids answer Gnat & Corky's questions at www.gnatandcorky.com and then Gnat & Corky select children to be interviewed for stories. The art is whimsical, and the storytelling transcends all ages. There are currently four titles published in the Gnat & Corky Series: Addison the Light Catcher, Ken the Keeper, Will It and From Malena with Love. Courtney is currently balancing book launches and working as a writer. Courtney lives in Northern Illinois with her husband, two kids, and Jake- the best dog in the universe.

Natalie has a background in art therapy and has worked with a diverse scope of clients. Over the years, her passion has brought her into many classrooms and corporate environments. Whether making art with her clients, creating team building curriculum, personal works, commissioned pieces or greeting cards; Natalie is deeply drawn into the stories that the human experience tells. She wholeheartedly believes that every individual is their own narrator- eagerly awaiting to weave their personal tale to achieve their highest potential.
