Stephen Huneck was an internationally acclaimed painter, sculptor and printer as well as the creator of the Dog Chapel in St. Johnsbury, VT, where he lived. In 1994 Huneck suffered from Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome after falling down a flight of stairs, leaving him in a coma for two months. The accident eventually led Huneck to make his segue into children's books, using his black Lab named Sally as inspiration for his first title: "My Dog's Brain". Huneck went on to write six more children's books based around Sally, including the New York Times Best-seller Sally Goes to the Beach.
