In past lives Bill Cotter has been a gallant knight, a mean ol' bear, a ninja with a secret, a slug, a majestic eagle, then a slug again. Now he is a renowned children's book author and illustrator. When he isn't drawing pictures, Bill enjoys playing the piano, looking for hidden treasure, walking on the moon, and riding unicorns across the rings of Saturn. His hope is to spread humor, art, and love throughout the universe.
