Katie Coates writes nonfiction and fiction for adults and children. She and her family live in Southern California and she grew up as a child in a military family. This helped shaped the creation of the book because her family moved many times, which made the author aware of how important it is to create traditions.
When asked about why she wrote the book, Coates said: "I am on a mission to inspire people to view their everyday lives as sacred, to spend more time making memories and doing special things with family and friends, and to bring more meaningful moments into their holidays and celebrations."
In answer to a quesiton about what got her started, she said, "Childhood friends remembered our Snapdragon parties from our teen years. They urged me to write the book so that they could bring the meaning and magic of the Snapdragon into their own lives."
