Katia Novet Saint-Lot was born in Paris, France, to a Spanish mother and a French father. She has since lived in the UK, the USA, Nigeria, and India, and has traveled to many places around the world. She now lives in India with her husband and two daughters. A literary translator by trade, she tries to find as much time as possible to write the stories that her expatriate life and the experiences of her Third Culture Kids (children who grow up in cultures different from those of their parents) inspire in her. Dimitrea Tokunbo brings to life the day-to-day experiences of life in Nigeria, where her father grew up. "I want to represent the beauty of all children. I feel that growing up biracial, having a direct connection to two different cultures in the American context, gives my art a spirit and spark that speaks to the children who were overlooked when I was a child." Dimitrea's children's books include Sidewalk Chalk: Poems of the City, Has Anybody Lost a Glove?, Together, and The Sound of Kwanzaa. Dimitrea lives in New York City with her two daughters.
