Chanler Holden was born in New Orleans, Louisiana. She grew up and lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana where she is a graphic designer and a stay at home mother of three boys: Holden, Wiley and Sawyer. Chanler has dreamed of illustrating children's books ever since she was a child herself. While Chanler was working on Flippy and Toadpole, her second son, Wiley was born with Down syndrome. We decided to dedicate the book to him...Chanler knows that Wiley truly "can be anything." Chanler designed and illustrated the book "Where Do Babies Come From?" and has designed many book covers for other inspiring authors. She loved helping bring Flippy's fun spirit and joy for life into the world.
