Summary

Author/illustrator Todd Bradshaw was born in Waterloo, Iowa. He and his wife, Marite, make their home in Madison, Wisconsin, where Todd builds sails for a living under his shingle Addiction Sailmakers. Addiction was the name of his wooden Star-class sloop. She was rescued from oblivion, fully restored and then struck by lighten. For fun Todd rebuilds old boats, and designs new ones. His background in art and music, as well as having owned backpacking and canoeing businesses, are just some of the puzzle pieces that have converged to create this book.
