Interested in an Author Visit?

Please ask about arranging an author visit to your school or library (in southwestern Ontario). Although our stories are for children ages 4-10, older students enjoy learning about the writing, illustrating and publishing processes – and some still like to have a story read to them!

Visits are free of charge, but we do request that you purchase a copy or two of our books for your library.

About Us

Ellen likes the way Debra draws, and Debra likes the way Ellen writes.

So it’s no wonder these two very good friends got together to tell stories about their favourite animals – cats!
