About the author:

Niña Mata is an author/illustrator of many children's books including the #1 New York Times Bestseller "I Promise" by LeBron James. She is also the illustrator of the Theodor Seuss Geisel Honored series Ty's Travels by Kelly Starling Lyons. Niña was born in the Philippines and raised in Queens, New York. Because her parents worked and went to night school she spent a lot of time drawing to keep herself entertained. Drawing and telling stories ultimately became a passion and the best way to express herself. She attended the HighSchool of Art & Design and studied illustration at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC. Niña's work is a consistent ode to the diverse community she was raised in. She believes that everyone deserves to see themselves reflected in the stories they read and that we should all be celebrated.
