Dana Claire Simpson grew up in Gig Harbor, Washington, drawing the entire time. She eventually graduated from The Evergreen State College, despite having spent all her time drawing, and not always for credit.
Attempts at doing real work along the way are hardly worth mentioning; the relevant fact is that, from 1998 to 2008, she drew the internet comic strip Ozy and Millie. After winning the Amazon-sponsored Comic Strip Superstar Contest in 2009, Andrews McMeel Syndication signed her to a development deal for Heavenly Nostrils, which was later renamed Phoebe and Her Unicorn.
She currently lives in Santa Barbara, California, with her tech genius husband and her fairly stupid cat.

Descrizione libro Turtleback Books. No binding. Condizione libro: New. Library Binding. 224 pages. Dimensions: 0.0in. x 0.0in. x 0.0in.Phoebe is a remarkably real little girl, as bright and imaginative as Bill Wattersons Calvin, as touchingly vulnerable as Charles Schulzs Charlie Brown. And if these strike you as big names to conjure with, Ill go further and state for the record that in my opinion Heavenly Nostrils is nothing less than the best comic strip to come along since Calvin and Hobbes. Simpson is that good, and that original. --Peter S. Beagle, author of The Last Unicorn, from the IntroductionA boy and his dog . . . a girl and her . . . unicornIt all started when Phoebe skipped a rock across a pond and accidentally hit a unicorn in the face. Improbably, this led to Phoebe being granted one wish, and she used it to make the unicorn, Marigold Heavenly Nostrils, her obligational best friend. But can a vain mythical beast and a nine-year-old daydreamer really forge a connection Indeed they can, and thats how Phoebe and Her Unicorn unfolds. This beautifully drawn strip follows the unlikely friendship between a somewhat awkward girl and the unicorn who gradually shows her just how special she really is. Through hilarious adventures where Phoebe gets to bask in Marigolds awesomeness, the friends also come to acknowledge that they had been lonely before they met and truly appreciate the bond they now share.
