Author: J&P Voelkel

Jon and Pamela (J&P) Voelkel are the author-illustrators of the Jaguar Stones books, a series of Maya-themed adventures set in present-day Central America. The fast-paced, funny stories center on the friendship between a city boy and a jungle girl— a mirror image of Jon's wild childhood in Latin America and Pamela's altogether tamer upbringing in an English seaside town. The Voelkels met while working at a London advertising agency and now live in Vermont. To research the Jaguar Stones, they have explored over forty Maya sites in Belize, Guatemala, and Mexico; canoed down underground rivers; tracked howler monkeys in the jungle; and eaten live termites for breakfast. Jon's most frightening experience was getting lost in a pitch-black labyrinth under a Maya pyramid. Pamela's most frightening experience was being interviewed by Al Roker on Today.
