    Author/Illustrator Biographies

    Stephanie Watson says, "When I began writing this book, I knew for sure that Natalie and Annie would be detectives, solving mysteries in their neighborhood. But the writing process is full of surprises --full of mystery --and as I wrote I discovered that the story was also about heroes. Heroes in the super sense --ones that wear flashy capes and rescue people. But it also dealt with a quiet kind of heroism, like giving your neighbors a helping hand when they need it. Doing what it takes to be a good friend, though it isn 't always easy. And deciding to be brave even when you are scared. Elvis & Olive: Super Detectives is full of heroic acts, large and small.

    "When I 'm not writing, I love visiting schools to give writing workshops and book talks. I live in the Twin Cities, in Minnesota, on a block much like the one in the Elvis & Olive books. "
