Meet the Authors

Deborah Kovacs has enjoyed working with others on some of her books. For one of her first books, Brewster's Courage, she invented a fanciful story based on a trip to Louisiana that a friend of hers, Joe Mathieu, had taken. Mathieu illustrated the book. Her next book, Moonlight on the River, was a collaboration with another illustrator friend, Bill Shattuck. Later, when Kovacs approached the topic of life in the deep ocean, she found that she and Kate Madin made the perfect team. "We have a Ph.D.'s knowledge and an 11-year-old's curiosity," she says.
