Dea Lenihan is obsessed with art, literature, and pens. While on a train ride to Florida she met three published authors and decided it was time to dust off her notebooks and get to work on her writing. Now her life is filled with Word documents, sketches, and lots of iced tea.

 Dea's art was recently featured at The Eric Carle Museum of Storybook Art. Previously a makeup artist for Sony Studios, she happily traded in her 9-to-5 gig for a rewarding career as an artist, designer, and author. The best part: working from her home office, she gets to spend her days dreaming of her next story as she watches the waves crash.
