About the Authors

Both having spent their entire lives in the Twin Cities area, husband and wife author team Barry McCool and Nancy Carlson combined talents to write their first book for Sleeping Bear Press, T is for Twin Cities: A Minneapolis Alphabet.

Nancy, the author and illustrator of more than 60 picture books, graduated from The Minneapolis College of Art and Design. 

Museums, book sellers and art supply stores in the Twin Cities were like a magnet to illustrator David Geister, who left his cherished hometown of Prescott, Wisconsin more than 20 years ago and moved to St. Paul, Minnesota. Since 2000 he has lived in south Minneapolis, and every one of his Sleeping Bear Press titles has been painted upstairs in the home he shares with his wife, teacher and author Patricia Bauer.
