Author Biography

Erin Hagar writes fiction and nonfiction for children and teens. Her manuscript There Was a War On (Charlesbridge Press, 2016) was awarded first prize in the picture book category in the Hunger Mountain Literary Journal’s youth writing competition. She teaches for the Center for Talented Youth program at Johns Hopkins University and has worked helping educators design curricula and refine their teaching strategies. She lives in Baltimore with her husband and two children. She has not yet trussed a chicken on the style Julia Child’s, but makes a mean molasses cookie.

As a child Joanna Gorham traveled all over the world. She found a love for food, exploring, and storytelling. Now she tells her own stories through her watercolors for children’s books and family magazines. She recently won two of Applied Arts Magazine’s Young Blood Awards, for the brightest up-and-coming talents. You can find her painting in a little red cottage on an island in the Pacific Northwest.
