Kristin Earhart grew up in Worthington, Ohio, where she spent her days climbing apple trees, pestering her cat (lovingly, of course), eating ice cream, and riding horses. In her downtime, she read a lot about the most amazing animals from all the corners of the world. These days, she lives with her husband and son in Brooklyn, New York, where she gets to research and write books of her own. She still loves animals. She still eats ice cream, often with the help of her son. And now, when she pesters her cat, the cat pesters back.
