Keller (1961 - ) toyed with being a professional dancer and an elementary school teacher before deciding to focus on greeting card illustrations at Hallmark. Scrambled States of America was her first book simply because the images of little states with arms and legs popped into her head one night as she fell asleep. Keller's series The Adventures of Arnie the Doughnut is a huge hit with younger children.
