Sara Madden, who may or may not be a witch, grew up on California's Central Coast. She was raised on donuts and cookies provided by her grandparents’ Tan Top Bakery. Her first story was written at age six, titled “I Love My Family,” and she's been writing ever since.
Growing up dyslexic (and her continued fun with it into adulthood), Sara always has and always will find comfort in words, imagination, and believing in the unbelievable.
She currently lives in Utah with her adorable family, who may or not be completely bonkers. She has three unreliable guard dogs, eight clocks that refuse to tell time, and one unremarkable trampoline. Buttery popcorn and cinnamon cake donuts are her favorite food. And she never, ever, never, ever, never leaves home without a stick of vanilla or cake batter lip balm in her pocket (her tastes are undeniably fantastic!). In her spare time, she loves to paint and roller skate, but never at the same time-messes are dangerously unavoidable (she knows-she’s tried it!).
Look for more of Sara Madden's books coming soon.

Hayley grew up painfully shy but full of wonder. Her cheesy but adorable parents and seven crazy siblings brought her love and laughter, but she rarely spoke outside her home until she was a teenager. She did, however, find plenty of opportunities to express herself, dancing everywhere she went and drawing on every surface she could find. She fought every day to be happier, healthier, and weirder.
Hayley has grown (slightly) taller and wiser since those days, but she still believes life's greatest joys are dancing in public, laughing until you cry, and eating chocolate chip cookies for dinner.
She now gets to enjoy life with her cute husband Jeffrey and their happy baby Lucy. They live part time in their small but cute home in Utah, and part time in their VW bus named Magnolia. Both homes are full of kisses and covered in illustrations of all kinds.
