Leeza Hernandez, an award-winning illustrator and now children's book author, hails from the south of England, but has been living in New Jersey since 1999. In 2004 she switched from newspaper and magazine design to children’s books, and hasn’t looked back. With a few books now under her belt, she’s currently working on three new projects: a follow up to Dog Gone! called Cat Napped; a sequel to Eat Your Math Homework called Eat Your Science Homework ( both are due for release in 2014) and a picture book written by acclaimed actor and author John Lithgow, due for release in 2013.
