An actor and Fulbright Scholar in Storytelling, Hale is in demand as a speaker, having presented at conferences, universities, and schools across North America from the Maui Writers Conference to the Surrey International Writers Conference in British Columbia.

Guy Francis spends most of his time drawing, painting, and drawing some more. He has done a variety of illustration work in the children's market, including editorial and educational illustration, chapter books, and picture books. He freelances from his home in Provo, Utah, where his wife and four children are his own personal art critics and bring a healthy bit of chaos to the studio. Every now and then he gets out of the house and heads to the mountains with his family.
