P. J. McLean lives in Ohio with her husband of twenty-three years, two rambunctious boys, two precocious teenage girls, and two beagle-mix pups, which leads to a very lively household. Amid all this, she has been encouraged to publish a children’s book. She decided to go with a story she had written a long time ago, “The Bears and the Baby.” The charming characters in the story have given her new ideas for future books. She hopes this will be a book that will earn a special place on a child’s bookshelf.
C. S. Jenkins currently lives in Ohio with her husband of twenty-eight years. Though her two grown boys and new daughter-in-law keep her very busy, she still has found time to raise a little prince named Theodore Ruffrider Roosevelt. Teddy, as he has lovingly been nicknamed, is a Shih Tzu–Yorkie mix that is full of life. C. S. Jenkins enjoys drawing in her spare time, and because of that, she decided to join with her sister in the publication of the book The Bears and the Baby. She’s hoping the characters are well received as future books are beginning to materialize in their partnership.
