About the Author:
Melanie E. Stephenson was born and raised in Rhode Island. She grew up on the beautiful shoreline, where she splashed in the salty ocean waves and danced in the warm sun-kissed breeze while her family told and read her stories that took her imagination on magical journeys.
Those fond memories and passion for storytelling lead Melanie to become a teacher and childrens author. She pursued her career path at Rhode Island College, majoring in elementary education and Spanish. Ella in Shining Armor is her first book and is dedicated to her niece.
Melanie and her husband, U.S. Army Veteran S.S.G. Justin Stephenson, enjoy telling and reading stories to Aliyah, Obie and Abby, and watching their imaginations whisk them away on the New England shores.
About the Illustrator:
Emilio Maiorano has been drawing for as long as he can remember. As a child, his parents allowed him to express his creativity and paint murals on his bedroom walls. He now shares this artistic talent and love with his daughter, Rylie. As with the author, Melanie E. Stephenson, creativity has become an important shared activity in the Maiorano family.
