About the Author
Tameka Fryer Brown loves drawing with brand-new, super-sharp crayons like Jamie, and her favorite color is all the colors of the rainbow. Writing stories for kids puts her in a sweet, juicy, peachy kind of mood. Tameka lives with her family in Charlotte, North Carolina. Shane Evans is an artist, author, illustrator, musician, songwriter, and founder of Dream Studio, a community art space in Kansas City, Missouri, where he currently resides with his wife, daughter, and three dogs. In 2012, he became a Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award winner for Underground, published by Roaring Brook Press.
Praise for My Cold Plum Lemon Pie Bluesy Mood by Tameka Fryer Brown: "In a free-wheeling style and going far beyond the usual pairings of colors with moods... a nicely sophisticated exploration." --Kirkus "It's valuable both for its believable exposition of Jamie's interior world and for its warm portrait of the life of a nonwhite family in which sharing is essential, rules are followed, conflicts are resolved, and meals are enjoyed together." --Publishers Weekly "An excellent jumping-off point for discussion--or writing--about readers' own colorful moods." --Booklist
