Guy Francis was born and raised in Provo, Utah. He lived in the city but was raised on a farm. As a child, he spent many summers working and playing on his family ranch, where he and his dad, brothers designed and built a cabin. Now, it's a place they all go to relax. Guy began illustrating at the age of nine. His first projects included his 4th grade bulletin board and numerous cartoon characters commissioned by his friends for 25[. It wasn't until high school that Guy realized a person could make a living being an artist, and while attending Brigham Young University, he got his first children's picture book job illustrating Showdown at Slickrock by Pat Bagley. Since then, he has published a variety of work including book covers, children's games, early chapter books, and picture books. He is thrilled to be making a living doing what he loves. Guy has always liked building, fixing, or creating things. His current projects range from fixing up his rusty old '46 Chevy pickup truck to remodeling a studio in his home. Guy also enjoys his model trains, flying RC airplanes, camping, and rock climbing. His wife, Lorien, and their four children, Calvin, Samantha, Madeline, and Max, are pretty good art critics and often visit the studio in his home to help out.
Reviews

"Francis's bubbly illustrations of overeager Clark and his friends create a lively undersea environment, and similarly rowdy kids may find Clark's rhyming technique a useful tool." -- Publishers Weekly for CLARK THE SHARK

"Most especially, enthusiastic kids will appreciate the message that there is a time and a place for everything-they needn't stay cool 'round the clock.'" -- Kirkus Reviews for CLARK THE SHARK

"With lots of determination and help from those around him, Clark learns how to genuinely share and celebrates how awesome it feels in true 'Funky Shark' fashion." -- Booklist review for CLARK THE SHARK DARES TO SHARE
