The Bard and the residents of Withering Heights are the creations of Tom Cordell, a retired educational television producer and practicing author. Happily dividing his time between Arizona and Southern California, Tom now avoids work in favor of musing or playing bad golf. He is very good company if you are buying lunch.
The characters of Withering Heights also come alive through superb illustrations by Bernie Kapuza. Bernie is a multitalented industrial illustrator, marketing guru, and graphic artist who lives outside of Chicago. The Bard is forever grateful to Bernie for his friendship, impish wit, and visual humor.
