AUTHOR S C CUNNINGHAM
Owned by 3 dogs and a cat, Cunningham normally writes suspense thrillers. As respite from her crime novels, she creates children's picture books, each with a theme to gently teach our precious young, and help start thought-provoking conversations between adult and child. The Ginormous Series is based on Cunningham's beloved family pets - Joe, Muttley, Dali (Jo), Tom and Vinnie.
