Tricia Morrissey Ready
Tricia Morrissey Ready loves writing children’s books because as a child she loved reading them. Born on the edge of one continent (Nairobi, Kenya), she now lives on the edge of another (Vallejo, CA) with her wonderful husband Mark. When she is not reading or writing she enjoys sailing on the San Francisco Bay.
Elizabeth Briel received her BFA in painting from the University of Minnesota and has since been an itinerant artist, working with the Liverpool Biennial, studying sculpture in Tuscany, and teaching photography to street kids in Cambodia. Her work appears in private collections in Dubai, England, Korea, the USA, Hong Kong, and Norway. She currently lives in Hong Kong but her studio can be anywhere in the world: to make these blueprint photos, she needs only sun and cyan chemicals.
