Lisa Tawn Bergren is the author of the children's books "God Gave us You" and its sequel "God Gave us Two", as well as several adult novels. She lives in Colorado Springs, CO with her children and husband. From her studio window or nearby her home nestled in the Shenandoah Mountains of West Virginia, Laura Bryant saw deer, fox, ducks, bats, possum, squirrels, skunks, and even a bear - all while she was illustrating this book! Laura is an award-winning children's book illustrator who loves to celebrate visually the beauty and intimacy of nature. Her hope is that children see their connection to the natural world as well as the love and warmth of their own parent.
