About the Author

In her books for young readers, Heather L. Montgomery shares her passion for nature. During her 20 years of outdoor education, Heather has unearthed many mysteries – from snake tongues to slurping bugs; the more bizarre, the better. Nature’s riddles led her to obtain a B.S. in biology and M.S. in environmental education. You can find more questions that have perplexed her in Wild Discoveries: Wacky New Animals, The Case of the Missing Arctic Fox and Other True Animals Stores for You to Solve and Mummies: Truth and Rumors. Heather lives in Alabama with her husband, cat, and dog.

Eldon's first career was as a Seattle policeman, from which he gleaned a collection of vintage mug shots that have inspired many of his more outrageous characters. Following a lifelong love of drawing, he quit his police work and enrolled in the San Francisco Academy of Art. From there, his original line-and-wash cartoons have now evolved into computer-generated illustration using Fractal Painter and Photoshop. Step-by-Step Electronic Design featured his procedure for creating richly detailed mock-historic portraits. He and his wife Sally live in northern California, and he still loves to ride his motorcycle whenever he can.
