About the Creators


Melanie Joy Pastor is a studio teacher who educates child actors on television sets around Los Angeles. She is passionate about teaching Writer’s Workshop to budding young minds, and is developing a program to promote emotional health in schools. Melanie has two children of her own whose curiosity about life leads to endless discussions and provides inspiration for her writing. In her spare time, she likes to swim, hike, and relax at the beach. She lives in Woodland Hills, California, and Wishes for One More Day was her first picture book.


Jaq Grantford is an Australian author and artist. Her passion for portraiture is evident in the many children’s books she’s illustrated. One of her greatest joys is to paint the faces of the characters, especially children, all shiny and bright. Jaq’s work is held in numerous collections, including the National Gallery of Victoria, and she has won international awards for her art. She lives in Melbourne with her two very helpful studio cats.
