Leilani Power, otherwise known as Lani, lives in Kissimmee, Florida and helps her brother and sister run a book review podcast called Book Power For Kids! She likes creating art and playing games, like chess and Dungeons & Dragons, the fantasy role playing game. Each week she connects with her cousin and aunt in St. Louis, drawing all sorts of things from frogs to robot chickens. When she isn’t drawing or doodling cats, bees and red pandas, you’ll find her curled up somewhere soft and cushy reading a book.
