About the Author:

Janet Stevens is a nationally known, award-winning illustrator. She explains, “When I was a child I was not particularly good at art, but I liked it. The more drawing I did, the better I got. When you like to do something, you practice more – and you usually improve. Now I draw almost every day in my studio and I’m still working at trying to make my art better. The youngest of three children, Janet was born in Dallas, Texas. Her father was in the Navy, and she moved many times as a child. Now she lives in Colorado with her husband, two dogs and two cats; her two children, Lindsey and Blake, are grown -- Lindsey is in her 2nd year at veterinary school, and Blake is an actor in New York City. Janet loves drawing animals in human situations. In From Pictures to Words: A Book About Making a Book, she uses animal characters to describe the creative process of making books from a collection of ideas. It is an excellent guide for those interested in creating stories and a favorite of young and old(er) alike who make books. Janet is particularly proud of her awards voted on by children, “her” audience. Her books have won many state children’s book awards, including Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Maryland, Missouri, Montana, South Dakota, Texas, Tennessee, Utah and Washington.
