ABOUT THE AUTHOR Paula R Montgomery has been writing ever since she can remember. She has written several short stories, articles for online publication, scripts and even dabbled in poetry. Pickle and the Gift is her first children's book, but with a flair and love of magical realism, it seemed a natural fit. ABOUT THE ARTIST Paula is what she would call a spiritualist; she meditates every day, enjoys yoga, reads countless books from spiritual mentors and masters, and believes that everyone has the right to their own beliefs as long as they don't infringe on anyone else's. “We must be the change we wish to see in the world” (Gandhi), and it all begins with how we treat ourselves and how we treat others.
