About the Author

Bill Wise (1958) is a retired middle school teacher who has written seven children's books, including the award-winning biography Louis Sockalexis, Native American Baseball Pioneer. The Pigpen Problem is the first of a series of Clavis Publishing comic books that feature math concepts. As a former teacher, Bill likes to write books that are both entertaining and educational. When not writing, he enjoys spending time with his family. Bill lives in Gorham, Maine, with his wife Mary Ann.

Davilyn Lynch was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia, where she would spend most days drawing, escaping into a world of creativity and wonder. She grew up in an inspiring household surrounded by her father's abstract canvasses on every wall. After the distractions of life, it wasn't until her first child came along that she rediscovered her love of drawing and decided to make it a major part of her life. With the help and support of her husband and close friends she was able to make her dream a reality and became a children's book illustrator. Being born biracial, (Filipino and Caucasian) Davilyn grew up in a community that was predominantly white and suffered discrimination due to others seeing her as 'different'. Davilyn wants to make sure she sends a positive message to young readers through her character illustrations that diversity among children and families is completely normal. Davilyn is self-taught, letting her passion and creativity be her guide in the picture books she works on.
