Steven Kellogg has loved animals, and drawing and telling stories since he was very young and becoming a writer was a perfect way to be able to do what he loved. His favorite writers and illustrators are Beatrix Potter and N.C. Wyeth. He loved the idea of “telling stories on paper” and after attending college, studying in Italy and becoming a teacher, he achieved his dream of publishing his first book.
He lives in the hills of Connecticut in an old farmhouse with his wife, children and many cats and dogs, one of whom a Great Dane named Pinkerton has inspired several books.
