Jamie Gehin grew up in Southern Wisconsin, and at the age of twelve, began working at the family restaurant where she often escaped to the back room to draw. After dabbling in forestry in Louisiana (hello, fire ants) she took a detour and earned a degree in visual arts from the University Houston at Clear Lake where she developed a strong interest in pottery. Jamie now works in the adult department at a small library, where she buys, recommends, and catalogs books for patrons of all walks of life. She lives in Illinois with her family and extremely energetic hairball of a dog, Bear, who keeps her company while she writes. Her favorite adult authors include Donna Tartt, Matthew Quick, Ransom Riggs and Haruki Murakami. Her favorite picture book authors are Ed Young, Leo Lionni, and Karen Beaumont.
