About the Creators
Originally from North Carolina, Ran Holeman fell in love with Philadelphia while an undergrad at the University of Pennsylvania from 2000 to 2004. After college, he dug more deeply into the city’s geography, history, and identity while while writing a novel set there, and he is proud that both his sons were born in the same hospital where Rocky recovers after the first Creed fight. Having lived in University City, Fairmount, and East Falls, he now lives in Beverly, NJ, close to the school where he teaches and works.
Kathryn Holeman is an illustrator and graphic designer based in southern New Jersey. As the owner of KSH Creative, she works with clients from all over the world on custom illustrations and marketing materials. She has illustrated four coloring books and the recently released 'Fodor's Inside Berlin.'
