Rio M Koviak
Rio Koviak was born in Los Angeles, CA and earned a bachelor’s degree in Theater/Film at UCLA. While working in the talent and casting departments for such companies as ABC, Paramount Pictures, and Warner Bros., Rio continued to write fiction, short stories, and humor. Meanwhile, Rio had developed a fascination with ethology and obtained a degree in Exotic Animal Training, Behavior, and Management at Moorpark College, CA. After working in the animal industry for many years in the Bay area, Rio met her book-designing husband Ian Koviak, and the two relocated to Portland, OR. to raise their family. Rio began composing and narrating tales for her little ones using elements from her two former disciplines (creative arts and animal behavior/education). Rio and Ian wanted to collaborate on a story together using his graphics and her characters, and the Hoagie & Katie series was born! Rio’s books can be found at her local Barnes & Noble, various children’s toy stores, and online retailers such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, BAM, Indiebound, and others.
