Melissa Mahle is a former spy, movie consultant, and non-fiction author.



Kathryn Dennis is a writer and illustrator with a background in marketing and advertising. www.kathryndenniscreative.com


Together Melissa and Kathryn write adventure and espionage stories for middle-grade readers, including the Anatolia Steppe series and the Junior Spy series. Fun fact, they each live in Washington, but not the same state.


When not writing, Melissa and Kathryn crave adventure and travel to strange places, which takes courage, curiosity of the unknown, and a very strong intestinal tract.
