About the Author
Audrey Vernick is a self-taught singer-songwriter, especially if you take away the singer-song part. Like a true rock star, she has lived much of her life on the road (though in her case, it has more to do with driving her children the various rocking places they need to go). She once caught a harmonica tossed her way by a full-fledged rock star. She plays all instruments equally well. Audrey lives near the ocean in New Jersey with one of each of the following: husband, son, daughter, dog. www.audreyvernick.com

Kirstie Edmunds is a rock'n'roll "artist" from the UK, who packed up all her (drawing) instruments and left her little country town for the bright lights of the big city. She can usually be found in the studio, singing loudly and drumming classic rock tunes on the table with her favorite colored pencils. She's so wild she once set fire to her own hair in a restaurant (by accident of course!) and she now lives just south of London, performing the occasional private concert to the neighbour's cat and her banjo-loving husband-to-be. This is her debut picture book. http: //pencilpocket.blogspot.com
