Erin Michelle Sky and Steven Brown met in a rock climbing gym and bonded over coffee and Scrabble. After their first game, Steven insisted on adding a timer to the turn rules, which Erin admitted was probably for the best.
As a child, Erin fell in love with toy farms and now owns life-size versions of the farmhouse, the barn, the fence, the truck, the tractor, the horse trailer, the horses, the donkey, the dog, and the cat. She is still considering the llama, which is sold separately.
Steven learned to swim before he could walk, learned to walk before he could crawl, and learned to jump motorcycles over barns before he learned about the laws of physics. He wrote his first story for his little brothers when he was nine, going professional at the age of ten when he wrote, directed, produced, and starred in a play about King Arthur and the Greek heroes, selling tickets to the neighborhood kids to fund future productions.
