About the Author


Stephanie Russell co-owns Peapod Publishing, along with her husband and illustrator, Rob. Together they create unique and heartfelt children’s books.

The inspiration behind Stephanie’s stories comes from watching her son learn and grow, as well as from her own childhood experiences. For as long as she can remember, she has enjoyed writing and reading. As a child, she would often retreat into her little blue bedroom to read books and write poetry.

Stephanie is a Native Oregonian, and lives with her family on the Oregon coast.
