About the Author & Illustrator
Tim Barmettler and Bill Hoover grew up together in Omaha Nebraska. They met on their first day of kindergarten and were friends ever since. That was the day they decided they were twins since they were born on the same day. Bill and Tim grew up fishing, playing soccer and basketball together. They shared dreams of being rock stars, professional soccer players, and world travelers. Bill would swing by Tim’s house every morning, so they could walk to school together. They talked of adventures and traveling the world. Neither one of them could have imagined that one day they would write a book about such travels. In high school, they both played on the varsity soccer team and continued to be good friends. After graduation, they parted ways when Bill went to Creighton University and Tim attended Northern Arizona University. Today Bill is enjoying a successful career as an artist in Omaha where he lives with his wife Stacia. Hoover Studios is very well known in the Omaha art community. Tim is living in Gilbert Arizona where he teaches English and coaches soccer. He is married to Barbara and is the father of Alice and William Barmettler. Tim wrote the story while living in Sedona Arizona while teaching in the Verde Valley. It was years later when attending their 25th high school reunion, that Tim and Bill decided to collaborate on The Contagious Yawn.
