About the Author

Pat Zietlow Miller began her writing career in college as a sports reporter and has had a fascination with Wilma Rudolph ever since. The Quickest Kid in Clarksville is her picture book tribute to the inspirational track star. Pat is the author of several picture books including Sophie’s Squash, Wherever You Go, and Wide-Awake Bear. She lives in Madison, Wisconsin, with her husband, two daughters, and one pampered cat.

Frank Morrison has always been a creator. In his early days, he channeled his creativity into graffiti art and break dancing. Later, inspired by countless visits to museums, he began focusing on painting, and eventually started illustrating books for children. He is the award-winning illustrator of many books, including Sweet Music in Harlem, I Got the Rhythm, and Stars in the Shadows.
