About the Artist

Susan Parker, the graphic artist who drew the barred owl on the cover, specializes in drawings of animals and birds. She was born in Washington D.C., graduated from The University of Maryland, Frostburg and lives in Forked River, New Jersey.

Although a snowy owl appears in the beginning of this book and a ferruginous pygmy owl at the end, the owls that haunt the other poems are all barred owls.
