Shawna J. C. Tenney wonders if having type A+ blood helps her to make A+ artwork (hey, it’s possible! Okay, probably not). When she isn’t draining the life out of chocolate bars, she can be found in her studio creating stories like her author-illustrated picture books, Pirates Don’t Dance! and Brunhilda’s Backwards Day. She lives in Utah with her two kids, two cats, and one husband.
