Andrea Elovson
attended U.C.L.A. as an English major. After graduating, she produced an interactive learning disk for I.B.M., and worked as a free-lance photographer.

She now lives in Philadelphia, where she has created videos for local museums while working as a free-lance editor and producer. She is currently producing a half-hour documentary on domestic violence and the family court system, and will receive her M.F.A. in filmmaking in January, 1997.

Many of the illustrations in The Kindergarten Survival Handbook were inspired by family members and real or imagined pets. Rudy and Jake, Andrea's two orange cats, will make their debut in her mother's next book.
