Writer-Illustrator Cassandra Federman was born and raised in Massachusetts, where she spent most of her days reading comic books and playing with action figures. She was about as popular as you would expect from the previous sentence.

She went on to graduate magna cum laude from Brandeis University and moved to Los Angeles to find herself. As luck would have it, she also found her husband, a fellow writer and a constant source of laughter. They spend their days raising their new baby boy, critiquing each other's work, and chasing away ducks that prefer their pool to the LA River.
