About the Author

Karen H. Monteith enjoyed reading from an early age. In fact, as a child she expected to learn to read on her first day of school—and was distraught when she didn’t master it instantly. When she became ill later that year, Karen was confined to bed for many months. It was during this time that books became her constant companions, with Grimm’s Fairy Tales being among her favorites.

Although she enjoyed reading, it took her a while to find her way to writing. After high school she worked full time, and it wasn’t until age twenty-six that she became serious about college. Taking night classes, eventually Mrs. Monteith received an English degree with a concentration in journalism from Western Carolina University.

In 2009, she began writing children’s stories as a hobby. In 2014, a little raccoon emerged a lively and lovable character. The little raccoon has remained a solid fixture in her stories ever since.

She and her husband make their home in western North Carolina.

Christopher J. Padgett began drawing together with his older brother when he was a young child and continued in the visual arts as a photojournalist for newspapers into college where he earned a BFA in Film with a concentration in animation at Columbia College of Chicago, where he took illustration courses as well.

Christopher has always loved children and his dream came true when he became a father to a red-headed, blue-eyed girl named Annette. She inspired him further to work on children's illustrations, and he created some homemade books for her to keep for years. Some nights when Annette had a hard time sleeping, she asked for Christopher to draw beside her, and she contributed here and there to create the wondrous world of Berry Hollow.
