Demery Matthews and Margaret Frey met through Fremont Elementary, their children’s school in Glendale, CA. When Margaret put an auction item in the school’s fundraiser offering to illustrate an original character, Demery bid on it, and won. She had written Captain Devin and His Little Red Boat for her son some years before. What resulted was a very sweet illustrated children’s book with more potential than either of them had anticipated.
