Georgia Ball’s family moved frequently for her father’s refinery career during her early years, living in Houston, Port Arthur and Bellingham, WA before settling in Beaumont again for eight years. She pursued a computer science degree at Georgia Tech, ignored a professor’s suggestion that she move into the scientific writing program and eventually transferred to the Savannah College of Art and Design. In 2010 an editor for Ape Entertainment contacted her and asked her to write for their new Strawberry Shortcake comic book series. Since then she’s published stories for Kung Fu Panda, Fruit Ninja and My Little Pony for IDW. Her latest comic book series, Littlest Pet Shop, was released as a hardcover in December 2014 and the second Littlest Pet Shop hardcover is coming out summer 2015.
