Here’s more information about Jordan J. Scavone
Jordan J. Scavone created his first picture book at about six years old. This first book, written and drawn (well, stenciled), was titled “The Animals Look For Food”. It was about, well, animals looking for food. Though not the most well-thought-out (or well written) book of all time, this did plant seeds for the future. After receiving his undergraduate degree in Children’s Literature and Theater for the Young from Eastern Michigan University, Jordan began working on his first picture book. In April of 2016, Jordan received his M.A. in Children’s Literature from Eastern Michigan University. Currently, he lives with his new wife (June 2016) Chelsea, and their awesome cat Lizbeth.
In 2017 Jordan’s debut children’s book Might-E was nominated for an Independent Publishers Book Award.
