Her books include Here We Come!; God's Always Loving You; Two Is Enough, which made the 2016 Bank Street list and New York Times Book Review; The Goodbye Cancer Garden; Peter, the Knight with Asthma; and Monster Trucks. Janna is a longtime volunteer with the Indiana SCBWI and provides editorial services to the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra for picture books supporting their Teddy Bear Concert Series. When she's not writing or making music, Janna can be found digging in the garden, swimming laps, walking Juneau the howling Husky, or keeping up with her husband and three mostly-grown kids.

Kristi Valiant loves cooking, monkeys, penguins, and red walls, all of which are found in her books. Her husband loves hippos, so you may find hippos lurking too. Kristi wrote and illustrated the picture book Penguin Cha-Cha and illustrated Danielle Steel's picture book, Pretty Minnie in Paris, as well as the Little Wings chapter book series, The Goodbye Cancer Garden, Cora Cooks Pancit and others. Kristi graduated magna cum laude from Columbus College of Art & Design with a major in Illustration. She lives in Indiana with her husband, daughters, and a room full of hippos, monkeys and sneaky penguins. Visit Kristi at or at
