Cheryl Harness "presents history as real people with real personalities rather than as dry, dusty textbook facts," according to ALA Booklist. She has written and illustrated many acclaimed historical picture books, including Ghosts of the Civil War, Remember the Ladies, and Three Young Pilgrims. Her days are filled with researching, writing, painting, and "gallivanting all over the country to see historic places and talk about picture books." She has ridden on parade floats for the Betsy-Tacy Society, and she likes to wear period costumes and play the harmonica at school appearances. She lives in Independence, Missouri (President Truman's hometown), with her Scottie and two cats
