Marisa Wiens grew up in North Delta, British Columbia, with her best friend, Laura Toews. These two could always be found on the playground, reveling in their own unique world of unicorns and peculiar merriment.
After Marisa had her son, Carver, she became more familiar with the world of children’s books. She automatically thought up a story about her special lumpy cat, Betty, and who better to draw the illustrations than her wondrous BF, Laura?
Marisa now resides in Victoria, British Columbia, with her husband, Chris; her son and daughter, Carver and Emeri; her two cats, Betty and Luongo; and her dog, Makaveli. She dedicates this book to her cat-loving gramma, Betty, who taught her unconditional love and who is now somewhere over the rainbow in heaven.
