      Regina Doman is the author of several books for young adults, including most
      recently Black as Night: A Fairy Tale Retold ( Bethlehem Books) and is the
      series editor of Catholic Teen Novel Project (Sophia). Ms. Doman wrote Angel in
      the Waters while expecting her first child in 1995. Today she and her husband
      have five children. She recalls how the came about:
      "My youngest sister Anna started to talk when she was not even two years old.
      My sister Alicia who was studying early childhood education had read that
      some young children who learn to talk early can describe life in the womb. So
      Alicia asked Anna if she remembered being in Mommy's tummy.
      'Yes,' Anna said.
      'What was it like?' Alicia asked.
      Anna said, 'It was warm, and dark, and there was an angel there.'"
      Ben Hatke is an artist and illustrator working in Virginia where he lives
      with his wife, daughter, two cats, and eleven chickens. As he illustrated this
      book, he and his wife began waiting and preparing for their second child to
      emerge from the waters.
      He created the striking illustrations for Angel in the Waters using a blend
      of traditional and digital media.
      Ben is currently working on an assortment of children's book and comic book
      projects.

      Product Description:
