About the Author

Whenever Dave Preston enters a school or a childcare center to sing his songs, you’re likely to hear a swelling chorus of, “Mr. Dave is here! Mr. Dave is here!” This singer-songwriter from Western New York has been delighting children of all ages with his original songs, such as Papa’s Car, The Lobster Dance, Munchkin Express and The Boo Boo Song for more than ten years. “The Monster in My Basement” is based on his original song Howard. Mostly retired now, Dave still visits with children’s groups occasionally with his daughter, who has followed in her dad’s footsteps. Dave lives in Brockport, New York, with his wife, Debbie. They have three children and four grandchildren. Heather Lynn Harris began creating art at the scary-young age of five and has pursued art and monsters ever since. Educated at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California, she made her publishing debut as the illustrator of The Swing and has seen “monstrous” success ever since, including winning a 2018 Silver Moonbeam Award for her third picture book Five Hungry Mice. She has five published picture books, two of which she authored and illustrated. The Monster in my Basement is her latest. She lives in Orchard Park, New York, with her husband and their three monsters, one of which lives in her basement!
