Ruth Todd Evans has had a life-long love of plants, gardening and nature. Following her career as a physician specializing in internal medicine and geriatrics, she has been pursuing other life-long interests in art and literature. Although her medium is usually oil, she used pen and watercolors to create a child’s version of Chinese brush painting for her book The Panda Who Would Not Eat. The boy holding the balloon was based on her grandson, Jack Todd Spraker who loved to visit the San Diego Zoo and the Quail Botanical Gardens.

Carol Stout has written poetry published in the San Diego Poetry Annual. Desert Critter’s Wacky Wisdom was the first children’s book she has published. The book originated from an assignment at a poetry workshop to write a poem of two competitors arguing. The results became the first chapter of this book. Each animal she wrote about led to the next desert critter.
