About the Author:

After a hiatus of eight years, author Charlotte Van Bebber and illustrator Mary Lou Ray Greer, have teamed up again and are pleased to make their rollicking tale, Twas the night before Christmas in the desert, available once more through Print on Demand (POD) technology. Moving to the Southwest nearly three decades ago kindled in Charlotte Van Bebber an abiding appreciation and respect for the Sonoran Desert. In this milieu she raised children and her career as a reference librarian flourished. Charlotte Van Bebber lives near Phoenix, Arizona with her husband and an Australian Cattle Dog--Sydney. Mary Lou Ray Greer is a native Arizonan artist and publisher (Doe Eyes Publishing) known for her colorful and whimsical interpretation of desert life. She currently divides her time among Eagar, Green Valley, and Oro Valley, Arizona surrounded by family and friends. Both ladies are delighted to be “back in print” and look forward to sharing their tale with young and old alike.
