    As an award winning author and illustrator of children’s books, Will Hillenbrand is lucky enough to love what he does and to do what he loves. Growing up in Cincinnati, Ohio Will enjoyed drawing pictures to accompany the stories that he heard in his father’s barbershop. During art school he took a class on illustrating children’s literature – and a career was born. Now, after more than 50 books, Will says, “I still feel lucky to do what I love.”

    He has won numerous awards for his work, including an American Library Association Notable Book Award for the first picture book he ever illustrated (Traveling to Tondo) and two International Reading Association Children’s Choice Awards for The House That Drac Built and Sam Sunday and the Mystery at the Ocean Beach Hotel.
