About the Author

Traci Swain was born and raised in the South Bronx and spent every summer of her childhood in Talladega, Alabama - both her parents were from this amazing small town. She and her brother Rodney loved going south to visit family and connecting with nature. While Traci was growing up, her mother and brother loved to read. However, she did not share this love. It wasn't until she found stories like Are Your There God? It's Me, Margaret by Judy Blume and The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton that she began to learn to love reading. She had finally found books with interesting characters and intriguing story lines that could pique her interest and hold her attention. Traci has been involved in children's publishing since 2011. She fosters the joy of reading by producing content with dedicated students, renowned authors and educators who go above and beyond for their young readers. Traci started writing children's books to help connect young readers with topics that make them laugh and want to learn new things. She hopes that her stories will help encourage a love of reading, inspire creativity, and build confidence and self-esteem - all while teaching empathy, inclusion and kindness. When Traci isn't writing, she spends her time traveling, hanging with family and friends, and checking things off her bucket list. Her biggest feat to date - climbing Kilimanjaro.
Celeste was born as Celeste in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Her mother taught her how to draw and expand her imagination. Later, she became a journalist and moved to Córdoba, a beautiful place in the heart of the country. It was there she found her love for illustrations, and words, and became "Kadysha." Now she spends her days creating worlds and characters full of moons and dreams.


"Animal lovers will enjoy the facts in this whimsical tale about an inseparable duo." -Kirkus Reviews

"Traci Swain gently encourages the reader to be confident and to discover the power of listening. Using humorous dialogue, the characters challenge each other's preconceived assumptions, while fun facts about sharks, starfish, and penguins enrich the story and teach young readers about sea life. Cheerful illustrations enliven this delightful narrative."

-Lucille Colandro, author

"Finding a Friend is a joyful, fun, and educational story about Deep Blue and her journey to find a friend. It is jam-packed with teachable moments and discussion starters on friendship, determination, and kindness. This will become a favorite read-aloud to enjoy over and over!"

-Shannon Langston, 5th grade teacher

"Traci Swain has crafted a wonderful story about the power of not giving up, believing in yourself, and being kind. Through humor and whimsy, Traci shows young readers that everyone has something that makes them special, and that giving others the chance to show it is the best way to make-and keep-friends! Kadysha's vibrant illustrations will keep readers swimming through the pages."

-Andrea Davis Pinkney, author

"If you are looking for the perfect read-aloud, Finding a Friend is it! My children fell in love with the story of Deep Blue and were giggling and loving this book from start to finish. As a teacher, I can use this book for a variety of subjects."

-Emily Yerty, 1st grade teacher and homeschooling mom
