Biographical and Professional Information

Donna Lukas and Tereasa Surratt have been co-creators and friends for many years, first working together as part of a creative team at Ogilvy & Mather advertising firm. The Forever Tree is their first picture book and is inspired by a very special tree on the Camp Wandawega property. The summer camp has been featured on CBS Sunday Morning, Today, NPR, and HGTV, as well as in the Wall Street Journal and Martha Stewart Living, among others. When not lounging in the tree house, Donna and Tereasa can be found spending time with their families in Chicago.
