ALEX WILLAN grew up in Louisville, Kentucky, where he was seldom seen without his sketchbook in hand. His love of drawing led him to earn a BFA in illustration from Savannah College of Art and Design. Alex has exhibited in art galleries and has painted murals, theater sets, and squirmy kids' faces, but his true love has always been children's books.

Alex is represented by LK Literary Agency, Chicago.

He lives in Chicago with his dog, Harley. Jasper & Ollie is Alex's first book.
