About the Author:

Nina Nolan has been writing for as long as she can remember (she sent out her first story to publishers when she was ten years old). When Nina read Just Mahalia, Baby by Laurraine Goreau, she was fascinated by the amazing and graceful life of Mahalia Jackson. She wanted more people, especially young ones, to know about Mahalia so they could feel empowered by her strength, too. Nina lives in Portland, Oregon, with her ridiculously darling puppy dog, Marshall.



John Holyfield's first picture book was The Hard-Times Jar by Ethel Footman Smothers, for which he received a Flying Start in Publishers Weekly. A renowned fine artist, his paintings and prints can be found in galleries nationwide. John began painting at the age of nine, and his work is rich in cultural themes that capture the essence of the African American experience. John lives and paints in Rosemont, West Virginia.
