About Lisa Stammerjohann

Lisa Stammerjohann lives in Southern New Jersey with her husband, son, daughter, and dog. She earned a master’s degree in counseling psychology and is trained in several holistic healing modalities. Lisa is humbled and transformed by the depth of pain and inspiration she has witnessed in the human spirit. Her desire to connect with others continues as she offers her gifts as an author, speaker, and healer. If she’s not working on her latest story, you can find her doing something artistic, volunteering or spending time with friends and family. With a knack for Irish story-telling and a preference for dry Italian wit, she enjoys a crowd, especially if it includes good food and drink. She’s always had a love of nature and never met an animal she didn’t want to take home. Moon-gazing and listening for the night owls are still some of her favorite pastimes.

Claudia Gadotti is an extremely talented illustrator of children's books and art instructor. She earned a degree in illustrations from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, USA. In 2008 she and her husband moved to New Zealand where they now live with their dog, Bruno. She considers herself lucky to work every day with her greatest passions, art and books. Like the boy and the Magic Owl, when Claudia was a child, she spent many hours reading. Sharing a bedroom with her sister, she could not keep a light on at night to enjoy her books. So while everyone slept, she crept into her bathroom and read until her mother found her, sending her back to bed. Gifted and modest, Claudia is able to capture the soul and personality of the characters and environments she creates with her brushes.
