About the author (1998)

Robin Williams is a fourth-generation Californian on both sides, born in Berkeley and raised in the Bay Area. She lived in Sonoma County for 15 years, then in 1993, she packed up her kids, the dog, and two cats and moved to New Mexico.

John Tollett's graphics background includes working as a designer, art director, and illustrator titles at advertising agencies and as a freelancer. "The majority of this experience was gained in Dallas, but the lure of adobe houses and snow-covered mountains brought me to Santa Fe. Here, I've continued designing, art directing, and illustrating, and of course started using a Macintosh. Now there's one factor present that wasn't there before: Now it's fun. Now I can experiment. I can change my mind. I can play.

I read once that all creativity is a form of play. I didn't believe it at the time. Being creative was work. But now, as I look out the window at the fresh snow on the mountains, I wonder: Should I go skiing or should I boot up the Mac?"
