The Author and the Illustrator

Author and illustrator of children's books and creator of "I Otter Be" illustrations.

Author and illustrator of children’s books and creator of “I Otter Be” illustrations.

Angela T. Baron is the author and illustrator of the children’s books A Tale of Two Squirrels (2013) and Squirrely Over Nuts (2010). After receiving a BS in Zoology from Texas A & M University, she started work in the veterinary field. Feeling her creative spark grow while working with animals at the clinics and while volunteering at the zoological gardens, she began filing ideas and stories in her head. The birth of her children fueled that fire and she began writing for children, using nature as an outlet to teach them about various issues and entertain them at the same time. Now she has expanded to include young adults in her audience. She is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators and the creator of the I Otter Be® line of illustrations that are available through her website. Otters are her favorite wildlife creature and her cute and active otter character found its way into the market via t-shirts and mugs. She lives with her husband and two children in western New York, where she actively writes and illustrates for herself and others, while still staying active in the volunteer community.

I don’t want to start a huge race relations discussion, or get political, so I will just let you digest this one for a bit. Speaking of digesting, the cookies that contain these little papers would taste good if they had some cinnamon extract added, but I digress. (read more…)
