About the Author

Matthew Mehan is a poet, scholar, teacher, speech writer, and musician. He is dear friends with illustrator John Folley. He earned a Ph.D. studying Shakespeare's teachings on poetry as an indispensable part of a free, just, and peaceful society. He teaches in Washington, DC, where he lives with his wonderful wife, Molly, and their own brood of handsome and beautiful little cygnets, who love to listen to his bedtime stories. John Folley is trained in Academic and Impressionist painting with a pedigree that reaches back to the workshops of the Renaissance of Northern Italy. He lives in the Boston, Massachusetts area with his wife, Deirdre, and their children. He graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a B.A. in Fine Arts and Philosophy.
