Vicki Trego Hill is the illustrator for the classic, best-selling ghost story La Llorona, the Weeping Woman. The original La Llorona was published in 1987 with Vicki's expressive black and white illustrations. In 2005, Vicki and her daughter Mona Pennypacker worked together to bring La Llorona into a color edition. Vicki drew a few more illustrations and designed the book while Mona added color to all the old and new pictures.

Watch Out for Clever Women! was nominated for the Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List in 1997. Vicki received the Texas Institute of Letters, Fred Whitehead Award for Best Design of a Trade Book in 2001 for the design of the book Questions & Swords.
