Andrew McDonough's Bio:
Andrew McDonough is the creator, writer, and illustrator of the Lost Sheep series. Way back in 1989 as a young Bible college student, Andrew was asked to give the dreaded "children's talk" at a large church. Andrew possessed one talent: he could draw sheep. He bought some overhead projector sheets and drew up the story of Cecil and the Lost Sheep. The congregation loved it, so Andrew continued to draw stories to use with kids and adults. Other students, pastors, and teachers started borrowing the stories.

Before devoting all his time to Lost Sheep, Andrew was pastor of WestCare, an inner city Baptist mission working amongst the homeless, supporting people struggling with addictions and advocating for refugees. Andrew, is still part of the WestCare community and hopes that the Lost Sheep stories will result in a generation of kids who follow Jesus by caring for the poor. He regularly tells stories and conducts workshops in schools and churches.
