Author Winders Templing is the last surviving heir of the Templing family which settled in Heavenly Hill Hollow during the time of it's founding in 1636. Winders has followed in his family's footsteps writing the strange history of this little village as it unfolded around him, and would now like to share these stories with the world. Winders, a self described recluse, sees this as his chance to break the bonds of his shy, reclusive life and bring the stories his family has guarded for so many years of the town they have loved so dearly to the outside world. In doing so he hopes the world, both children and adults alike will find and enjoy the magic that he knows as his home in Heavenly Hill Hollow.
Raised in a small New England town, Russ Trudel the co-author/illustrator spent many days playing in the woods surrounding his rural home and cultivating a creative imagination as a child. Years later after spending time in the Marine Corps,and travelling the author came home to the area of his birth and settled down with his wife Janet and rescue dog Gunny, to pursue his love of writing and illustrating. During his travels he came across Heavenly Hill Hollow where he met and befriended Winders Templing and through the same love of small town and great story-telling has collaborated and worked with Winders to bring these stories to the world.
