Adrienne Hedger was born and raised in Southern California. She loved cartoons from an early age, and read her Peanuts book so many times it fell apart in her lap. After graduating from UCLA, she worked as a freelance writer, created three humor books about parenting, then worked as the lead cartoonist for Nickelodeon’s NickMom website. Today she runs the “Hedger Humor” cartoon site and creates humorous greeting cards for American Greetings. She lives in Southern California with her husband, two daughters and dog—all of whom figure prominently in her cartoons.
