Nicole and Shar Abreu grew up in California, where their love of the ocean, sunshine, good books, and creativity began. They are passionate about creativity in childhood education. Nicole studied early childhood development in college and has taught preschool for children of all abilities for over a decade. Shar studied English with an emphasis in creative writing and spent more than twelve years helping create award-winning language & literacy software for young learners. They live near the mountains of Utah with their families, where dragons, mermaids, centaurs, and stories are part of their everyday lives. In writing Over in the Woodland, the twin sisters combined one of their favorite childhood rhymes with their favorite mythological creatures. This is the first book they’ve written together, and that makes it pretty magical. You can visit them at nicoleandshar.com or on Instagram: @nicoleabreudrysdale and @sharabreupetersen.
