About the Author

In addition to authoring Three Little Beavers and Loon Chase for Sylvan Dell, Jean Heilprin Diehl writes novels for kids and adults. Three Little Beavers was inspired by her interest in stories about urban wildlife conflicts with happy endings. Her fiction received a James Michener Award, and she has taught writing at all levels, from elementary school through college. She lives near Washington, DC.

Kathryn Freeman (Loon Chase) spent many summers on Conway Lake in the White Mountains region in New Hampshire where she learned to use pastels from her uncle, the landscape artist Robert Jordan. He and Kathryn often took a canoe out at dawn to check on nesting loons. Kathryn is known foremost as a painter. Her works have been exhibited nationally and internationally and are held in numerous private and public collections. She has also done a number of large public commissions, including three story murals for the new public library in Jacksonville, Florida. While this is her first children’s book, it will likely not be her last! Her life-like pastels are superb.
