Author Shane Petosa-Sigel has grown up in Kailua his entire life and has comfortably called it home. Since he was a child, Shane has been drawing comics, writing stories, and creating fictitious worlds to roam. Math homework was often turned in with scribbles and characters living between the margins, notebooks soon became sketchbooks, and the first iterations of many imaginary worlds were realized through countless class notes and scrap papers along the way.

Shane continues to practice and refine his love for comics and storytelling, and hopes that his stories can foster the imaginations of many young readers.
