About the Author
NOSE DIVE started as a Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month) project, and is Karin Gustafson's first young adult novel (as well as her first comic novel). She has previously written and illustrated 1 MISSISSIPPI, a children's counting/bedtime book for lovers of light, rivers and pachyderms, and GOING ON SOMEWHERE, a book of poetry. Karin's writings, paintings, poetry, humor and elephants can also be found on her Manicddaily blog. Jonathan Segal, a recent graduate of SUNY Binghamton, has long specialized in drawings that are zanily clever and whimsical.
