About the Author

John A. Purdy's experience with and passion about both photography and drones has driven him to write this children's book series.

John has been a professional photographer since the 1970's. Like Leah, the main character of his first drone book, he got into taking photos at an early age - for him, in his teens. For almost 50 years he's always loved taking pictures, especially ones that see things differently.

John has been a commercial drone pilot since 2017. When cameras on drones became better and he saw the high quality photos and videos created by drones, he was hooked! He knew right away that he wanted to take his talent and skills as a photographer into the sky so he could share the view of the world from a whole new perspective.

In addition to these skills and interests, John is a web developer and Vice President of the digital media company, Creative Cat Media. Oh...and husband of the super-talented illustrator of the "Leonardo" series, Cindy Rodella-Purdy.

Illustrator Cindy Rodella-Purdy delights in bringing books to life. Her whimsical style fits her own enchanting stories and those of other authors. She's an author as well, having penned the currently published "The Bed Ate My Sock!" and several other books that are in the queue.

With a BFA in fine arts, she has worn many hats over the years, from working as a designer, programmer, and project manager in digital media to picture book illustration and writing. Her artistic passion energizes her company, Creative Cat Media. She lives in her own imagination but resides in Dallas with her husband John and favorite felines, Hubble and Tess.
