About the Author

As a kid, Yee-Lum Mak loved long words best, but she's since learned that lovely words come in many shapes. This book is from a tumblr of the same name, begun while the author was in high school. She lives in Los Angeles.

Kelsey Garrity-Riley grew up in Belgium and Germany before moving to the United States to study illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design. She and her husband now call Brooklyn, New York home.
