About the Author

Elizabeth Lorayne is an author, artist and mother, inspired by nature, history and the daily rhythms of her surroundings. As the granddaughter of Admiral Walter T. Griffith and having spent her own childhood sailing and exploring the shorelines of the Pacific Northwest, she has developed a deep respect, curiosity and love for water, exploration and creativity. Now, while raising her young daughter on the Northern Atlantic coast, Elizabeth feels a desire to remind all of us of our forever shared companion - Mother Nature; and with that reminder, to press upon us to cherish and protect her.

Elizabeth is a graduate of The New School in New York City and a current member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. You can see her artwork on her personal site

Karen Watson is an artist, illustrator and visual effects compositor living on the stunning west coast of British Columbia. Since graduating from film school in 1999, She has worked as an artist in the film and television industry, run her own greeting card company, Blue Belle design, and was the curator for a local art gallery. In pursuit of a balance between her passion for digital and textile creativity, in 2006 she jumped down the rabbit hole to pursue the art of illustration. The opportunity to study and understand light, colour and composition, gave her the skills and the eye to create illustrations using the organically beautiful medium of water colours. Karen's whimsical, fairytale style lends itself well to children's books, with the goal to delight both children and adults with illustrations that tell a story through attention to detail and design. Karen feels fortunate to be working as both an illustrator and an awards nominated digital compositor in visual effects. She is a proud member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, inspiring young minds to read. You can find her illustrations at and a list of her film work on IMBD.
