Brad Sneed

Brad Sneed was raised in Kansas. An artist from an early age, what he really wanted to be when he grew up was a cowboy or a football player. Somewhere along the way, he decided his odds of making a living were better as an artist, so he went to Kansas University to study illustration. After graduation, Brad began illustrating his first picture book. It was official…he was a REAL picture book illustrator!

To date, he has created art for more than twenty-five books—some of which he also wrote. His books have earned honors from Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, the Society of Illustrators, the National Council of Social Studies, IRA-CBC, American Bookseller, Junior Library Guild, and appeared on state book award lists.

Brad lives near Kansas City with his wife and daughter. He can’t imagine a better job than illustrating and writing and picture books…although sometimes he still daydreams of being a cowboy or a football player! View Website
