As a writer and librarian, Cristina Ergunay believes in the magic of picture books. She spends her days celebrating the written word with a cup of coffee in her hand and a seashell in her pocket. After years of living and working in New York City, she moved back to the Jersey Shore to build sand castles with her husband and daughter. She is still patiently waiting for The Great Pumpkin.
