Who are we?

We met our first week at U.C. Berkeley, where Elise majored in Mass Communications with a focus on nurturing creativity in children and Christie wrote her English thesis on witchcraft in literature.

We did not major in Major Bangs, although it could be argued otherwise given various photographic evidence.

Christie also holds a master’s degree in Early Childhood Bilingual Education from Bank Street College of Education in New York, and we are both members of SCBWI.

While Elise moved up and down the West Coast after college, Christie bopped around the country until she landed in the Northeast for a second time. It was then, located on opposite sides of the country, that we began writing together. Our brains are kept functional by coffee and chocolate and our hearts are kept functional by our families.
