Laura Ballentine Ferris had a happy childhood growing up in Minnesota and New Jersey. She now lives in New York City with her wonderful husband and two darling children. Her firstborn is her daughter Sally, who in her own special way gave Laura the thought to write this book.
Susan Miller Ballentine is Laura’s lovely mother. She attended many art schools, including the Art Students’ League in NYC and The Chicago Institute of Art, and many workshops throughout the country.
