Geoff and Ashlee Wagner are a husband-wife, illustrator-writer duo, who earned their BS and MS degrees in Meteorology at Florida State University, where they started their happily ever after together. 

Geoff started making art and personal mini-comics as soon as he could hold a pencil. He earned a diploma in Graphic Design and is always working to improve his illustration skills through courses and practice. For his day job, Geoff works for NOAA’s National Weather Service (NWS). His art has been featured on the NWS webpage, as prizes in Games Done Quick charity marathons, donated to the Superhero Project, and bid on in a regional SCBWI silent auction. 

Ashlee worked for a renewable energy company for a decade before retiring to raise little ones and teach part-time. At University, Ashlee worked with educational outreach programs to spread the importance of science education, especially for middle school girls. They are involved with the National Weather Service, the National Hurricane Center, homeschool, and Outschool communities, and spend a lot of time at their local library. They are active members of Kids Comics Unite / Studio, SCBWI, critique groups, and past students of the Kids Comics Intensive course.

What's the deal with WagWorksGA?

When deciding on a domain name, we wanted to use our names, but we both have unusually spelled names. If someone spelled Ashlee correctly, they may spell Geoff as "Jeff," and that wouldn't work!  Or if they got Geoff right, they might spell Ashley with a "y," which also wouldn't work. So, we mashed up our last name, Wagner, with "Works" as in art-works, because we love alliteration.  The G and the A stand for Geoff and Ashlee.  And there it is: !
