Wendy MacNaughton is a NYT best-selling illustrator and graphic journalist based in San Francisco. Her books include Meanwhile in San Francisco, The City in its Own Words (Chronicle), Lost Cat: A True Story of Love, Desperation, and GPS Technology (Bloomsbury), Pen and Ink: Tattoos and the Stories Behind Them (Bloomsbury), The Essential Scratch and Sniff Guide to Becoming a Wine Expert (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), and most recently, The Essential Scratch & Sniff Guide to Becoming a Whiskey Know-It-All (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt)
