Born in Indonesia, I moved to Los Angeles to live on my own when I was 12. I currently live in New York, but always consider myself a California gal.  
Before freelancing as a designer & illustrator, I co-founded A Good Company with my good friend Micah. We make all sorts of awesome stuff for the web, but you probably know us best from The League of Moveable Type. As a designer & illustrator, I spend my time making everything from children's books to murals, and most recently educational science apps.

Sumac Lottery is the keeper of her family's traditions --- from Pow Wow to Holi, Carnival to Hogmanay, Sumac's on guard to make sure that no Lottery celebration gets forgotten. But this winter all Sumac's seasonal plans go awry when a Brazilian visitor overstays his welcome. A terrible ice storm grounds all flights, so one of her dads and her favorite brother can't make it home from India. And then the power starts going out across the city... Can Sumac hang on to the spirit of the season, even if nothing is going like a Lottery holiday should?

by Emma Donoghue and Caroline Hadilaksono - Children's 8-12, Family, Family Life, Fiction

Sumac Lottery is nine years old and the self-proclaimed "good girl" of her (VERY) large, (EXTREMELY) unruly family. And what a family the Lotterys are: four parents, children both adopted and biological, and a menagerie of pets, all living and learning together in a sprawling house called Camelottery. Then one day, the news breaks that one of their grandfathers is suffering from dementia and will be coming to live with them. And not just any grandfather; the long dormant "Grumps," who fell out with his son so long ago that he hasn't been part of any of their lives.
