    About the Author

    Jennifer Rustgi developed a love of children's literature during her years teaching reading as an elementary school teacher and became inspired to write her own stories through her experiences with her young daughter. The idea for A Moon of My Own grew out of her (then 3-year-old) daughter asking, "Mama, why does the Moon always follow me?" Jennifer lives in Austin, Texas, with her husband and daughter.

    Ashley White is a graphic artist, illustrator, outdoor-fanatic, peony-gazer, and daydreamer, with an eye for all things fabulous and creative. Her illustrations for A Moon of My Own are inspired by her love of travel and her daughter who wears rain boots every day. When she is not exploring the world, she lives just outside of Austin, Texas, with her husband, daughter, and handsome dog, Tsavo.
