Divya Ma Lovingly grew up Catholic in Manila, Philippines and later became a yogic nun. She travelled to Bangkok, India, Jamaica, the United States, Mexico, and Canada, teaching meditation, yoga, and humanitarian services. She has been one of the pioneers in introducing yoga classes in the U.S. public schools with preschoolers, elementary, and middle school students and teachers in the 1990s. She lived in a solar-powered yurt in the Ozark Mountains in Eureka Springs, Arkansas from 2000 to 2010. Presently, she lives with her spiritual partner, Gopala, in Wisconsin and Arkansas. Divya’s picture books have won awards and been integrated into the “Raising a Reader” program that supports early literacy, school readiness and meaningful home school connections. Divya’s stories are inspired by the nature she sees and feels around her. Keep up with her author news on Facebook.


Tze-Chiang Lim is an Australian-based illustrator who grabbed a pencil when he was young and never really let go. He did “however” pick up a pen and a brush in his other hand somewhere along the way and is currently researching ways to grow at least two more hands (with the accompanying arms, of course) in the near future.
