Violet Lemay

As a girl in the happy land of St. Louis, Missouri, Violet Lemay was always drawing and making things with her hands. When she grew up, she became a costume and set designer and moved to New York City, which was a lot of fun. Even though she loved her work and living in NYC, Violet realized that her true dream was to illustrate books for children. She moved south to attend a school for illustrators. Since then, Violet has illustrated 43 books for children, including 6 which she also wrote. Her most recent books, "Let's Be Friends" and "Heahtly, Healthy, Love, Love, Love" were published by HarperFestival. Violet and her husband Fred live at an American international school in Malaysia, and their son, Graham, is a law student in New Zealand. They are American golbe-trotters!
