Meet the Author

Today, Peggy Rathmann lives with her husband on a hilltop in San Francisco. She gets up early in the morning to work in her bright, tall studio. She says that she worries a lot about working too slowly: "It's a lot of work to make something that only takes about seven minutes to read…. It takes me years and years."
