About the Author:

The career path of Nel Yomtov has taken him from the halls of Marvel Comics, as an editor, writer, and colorist, to the world of toy development. He then became editorial and art director at a children’s nonfiction book publisher, and now Nel is a writer and editor of books, websites, and comics for children. A harmonica-honking blues enthusiast, Nel lives in New York with his wife, Nancy. They have a son, Jess.

I live in the Eternal City, in a small colorful flat on the 5th floor, not far from a beautiful park, where you can admire an amazing landscape of Roman ruins against the sunset background. Although my tiny balcony does not overlook the park, I like to have the perception that near my house and maybe under too, there is a piece of ancient Roma. I work at home in a part of the flat that is the dining and living room too...and that sometimes is a guest room too, sharing my workchair with Meo, our glutton cat. I draw all the day trying at the same time, to remember everything I need to buy at the market and waiting for my cute boyfriend to return home after work, for cooking the dinner..(because he is the chef, I am not...) I love to speak by myself when I take a shower and to change the furniture disposition in my house, or try to keep my cat on a diet, but my main interest remains to draw. I started this job almost without knowing that it would have been the job of my life because it has always been a natural pastime since I was a child, when drawing for me was such as writing my own diary...my own secrets. The best memory of my childhood concerns the big quantity of paper reams that my father brought to me. He was a bookbinder, so finding a sheet to draw on has never been a problem in my house. At school I was not really ...ehem...eager to learn, but I often met teachers that encouraged my talent, turning a blind eye on my scholastic results. My discouraged parents capitulated and accepted to enroll me to an Artistic High School. By that point, my life began to be easy. I graduated in Illustration at The European Institute of Design in Rome. I started early to work for a wide range of clients in many different specialities, from editorial and publishing to advertising and I have been a background designer and a teacher too. I always found every field of application interesting to explore, passing through advertising to historical recostruction, from landscapes to details, using watercolor or digital painting, drawing with charcoals or wacom tablet! I am quite happy to live doing what I always loved and I have everything I need. My only dream for the future is to still continue to work as illustrator with my own well organized workstation in a bigger home possibly on the beach, looking at the sea from huge windows, with the same man with me and the same cat sitting on it's favorite sofa...

From Booklist:

Focusing on American history, the American Graphic series uses a comic format to introduce figures that have caught people’s attention from the present and the past. Here the focus is on the last election’s new faces. In Sarah Palin, her surprise ascension to vice-presidential nominee is covered completely: both the excitement she brought to the ticket as well as her weaknesses are discussed. Though Sarah Palin has an uncertain future role in politics, this book leaves open the possibility of bigger things to come. Although the artwork varies in accomplishment even from panel to panel, it does capture the vigor of a political season. One excellent addition is putting actual quotes in yellow. The back matter includes a spread summing up each subject and his or her accomplishments and leads readers to facthound.org for more information. --Ilene Cooper
