About the Author:

Sarah Conover's interests lie with world religion and multicultural storytelling traditions. She holds a BA in religious studies from the University of Colorado and an MFA in poetry from Eastern Washington University. The founder and general editor of the This Little Light of Mine series, she lives and writes in Spokane, Washington, where she teaches at Spokane Valley High School.

Chen Hui majored in English literature and education at Hunan Normal University, in Chansha. She subsequently earned an MA in education from Harding University, in Searcy, Arkansas, and taught Chinese at St. George's School, in Spokane, before her recent move back to China.

Ji Ruoxiao is a professor of art at Sichuan Normal University, in Chengdu. She studied at Beijing's Central Institute of Fine Arts, and her paintings hang in the Chinese Art Museum, also in Beijing. The recipient of many honors, she was one of two Chinese artists whose work was chosen for the art exhibition at the Fourth United Nations World Conference of Women. She lives in Seattle and returns to Sichuan each year to teach.
