Kit Grady is a children’s illustrator and author, living in the mountains of North Carolina, USA. Her love for drawing animals, nature and children began very early. Her first assignment, with a weekly children’s activity page led to a venture with a line of greeting cards. Later she worked on projects with The United Methodist Publishing House/Cokesbury and educational publisher, Kaeden Books. She is a staff illustrator for Guardian Angel Publishing. Meegenius Publishers just released a new ebook, Mollie The Merbaby for iTunes with Kit as author and artist. She recently won first place in The 2011 SCBWI Carolina's Children's Picture Book Manuscript Contest. This story is currently under revision on spec with a large publishing house. Kit enjoys a palette of bright colors, lots of action, and lively expressive creatures and animals full of antics and fun. When not drawing, you may find her visiting schools and teaching art classes. She is living the life she loves. You may find out more about Kit Grady at www.kitgrady.com or www.kitgrady.blogspot.com.
