• MICHAEL HALE has worn many different hats in his lifetime. He has worked as an illustrator, copywriter, concept-designer and even as the Creative Director at the Phoenix Zoo.


    In wearing these different hats, he has realized that a consistent theme has been reoccurring all of his life… Every job he ever liked was centered around trying to make children happy with his artwork and words.


    This naturally led him to pursue a new career – writing and illustrating picture books. He currently lives and works in Phoenix, Arizona.
