The Authors and Illustrators - Profiles

Cheryl Harness 

  Cheryl Harness is grateful to the ambitious female writers and artists who broke a path and paved the way for her. "I grew up reading all of Laura Ingalls Wilder's books and the Betsy-Tacy books by Maud Hart Lovelace," she explains with great fondness. Lois Lenski and Jessie Willcox Smith were favorite illustrators. Cheryl Harness deeply admires the trailblazers of colonial America as well-particularly Abigail Adams. "It amazes me how after working hard on a farm all day, taking care of the children with her husband away and the war so near, she could sit down at her desk and write such witty, insightful letters."  
  Highly acclaimed titles by Cheryl Harness include The Amazing Impossible Erie Canal, Three Young Pilgrims, Young Abe Lincoln, Ghosts of. the White House, George Washington, and Ghosts of the Twentieth Century. She lives in Independence, Missouri.
