About the author
"I write and illustrate under the name Jacqueline E. Hartman, and this is my debut children's book. I started my career as an artist and illustrator for the Department of the Army after graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Moore College of Art in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After receiving my Master's Degree in Industrial Arts and several teaching certifications from Glassboro State College, now Rowan University, I entered a career in education that lasted for 36 years. Upon my retirement, I began illustrating again. During the pandemic, I spent a lot of time drawing and painting the flora and fauna that live in our garden, which is a Certified Wildlife Habitat. This led to the many adventures of Shoo Shoo and Teakettle, the first of which I have published here. I live with my husband, John, and we enjoy traveling and all kinds of dancing."
