Megan Cooley Peterson is an author, editor, and coffee drinker. As a teenager, Megan was part of a cult-like doomsday church that didn’t like to be questioned. She questioned anyway. She has written more than 200 nonfiction books for children on a wide variety of topics, including dinosaurs, sharks, urban legends, and haunted objects. She is also the author of two young adult thrillers, The Liar’s Daughter (2019) and Dead Girls Talking (2024). She lives in Minnesota with her husband and daughter.

Laura Zimmermann is the author of the Minnesota Book Award winner My Eyes Are Up Here and the Edgar-nominated Just Do This One Thing For Me. When she’s not squirreled away writing, you might find her telling stories onstage, biking to her favorite coffee shop, or looking for the perfect place to hang a hammock.
