About the Authors:

Charles Roberts, who goes by Charlie, is a former sportswriter who now works in public relations by day and writes books after the sunsets. He earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism at Buffalo State College and spends his free time running, creating content, and enjoying every moment of raising his daughter, Zoey. Charlie and his wife, April, have Zoey and a rambunctious dog named Layla.




Stevie Johnson, who lives by the mantra “Handle Biz, Have Fun,” is a former professional football player for the Buffalo Bills, San Francisco 49ers, and San Diego Chargers. He was the first player in Bills history to post back-to-back seasons of 1,000 receiving yards or more – and even added a third straight year for good measure. Today, Stevie and his family reside in San Diego. He founded and continues to manage the HBHF Club and Exposure Academy, which are geared toward educating up-and-coming football players and providing a platform to display talent.


Zachary McCabe, who goes by Zack, is an architecture professional who spends his free time painting, creating art, and – of course – illustrating. Zack, a diehard Buffalo sports fan and frequent golfer, earned both bachelor’s of science and master’s degrees in architecture at the University at Buffalo. He and his wife, Kelly, live in Buffalo with their dog, Cali.

About this coloring book series: The VISIONS coloring books series (also created by Stevie Johnson) was created to spark creative thinking and help children envision a variety of professions. Children color their way into the shoes of the alien characters and think, “maybe I can do that, too.” No dream is too big to conquer, and nothing is out of this world — even for an alien — when you’re willing to work hard and have fun along the way.
