Consie and Nina Berghausen work as a team. They have written and illustrated five books. Consie splits her time between Tucson, Arizona and Chatham, Massachusetts. Her home in Chatham is on a saltwater marsh. It is her many years of watching wildlife out her back window that inspired her writing about habitat and animals. Four of her five books take place in Cape Cod and one is about the Sonoran Desert. A teacher and former therapist, Consie now enjoys writing, tennis, and traveling with her husband. Nina is a graphic design artist in California. She enjoys playing tennis and horseback riding. She also has a heart for animals.
