The cobbler's children have no shoes. I need to get my bio up!
Anna lives with her charming husband, their adorable sons and their cuddly puppy. They live on a mountain, in the woods, next to a river. Anna has always loved telling stories and now is enjoying writing stories. When she isn't writing she is probably being rescued from dragons by her toddler or trying to coach her baby in crawling. She also loves being outside and eating dessert (which go hand in hand).

Veneza lives in Austin, Texas with her husband and two children. She enjoys adventuring about the city with family and friends. She finds inspiration in seeing Gods hand at work in the world.
Ashley is originally from Nashville, TN, but has lived in Austin since 2008. She and her husband,
Kendal, have two little girls, Ruby and Frances, 3 and 1, who love nothing more than wearing matching dresses at the moment. Ashley has always had a deep love for art. Whether it was writing and illustrating her own stories as a young child, creating elaborate projects for school, picking out every piece of every outfit with thought and excitement, listening constantly to music and going to live shows, singing in choir, or enjoying decorating all the spaces she’s lived in, art has deeply influenced most aspects of her life. Ashley started staying home when Ruby was born, and it was then that she started dabbling around with calligraphy and hand lettering. What started off as a little greeting card hobby has now become her small business House Sparrow Press. She does mostly wedding related invitations and custom signage, as well as custom watercolor and hand lettered paintings.

Denna first remembers drawing something that looked like the thing she was drawing in fourth grade, and she has been creating art ever since. Her art takes many forms —from canvas paintings to murals to pottery to fused glass to silver jewelry. While her children were young she taught private art lessons in her home and summer art camps in her garage. In 2011 she opened her studio, Create Art!, in Longview, TX where you can find her still teaching children or stop by to create your own piece of art.

Théa Rosenburg and her husband have four daughters, which makes her family very like the Marches from Little Women (but without the fancy dresses or the Civil War). She loves reading aloud in a bad British accent, pinching snapdragons so it looks like they’re talking, and reuniting long-separated socks. She writes about her favorite children’s books at Little Book, Big Story.

Jenny Williams grew up reading way past her bedtime and doodling on all her math homework. After college she spent a few years working on Capitol Hill, followed by an unimaginative corporate job, before she finally embraced the fact that she is a creative at heart. She is now the illustrator and creator of Carrot Top Paper Shop, an online community and shop inspired by classic heroines of literature (and can’t believe gushing about Anne Shirley and creating literary art is her actual job). Jenny and her husband, Eric, both work from their home in Oklahoma City, and have a three-year-old daughter named Violet. As a family they love to play music, read a lot of books, and make going to the grocery store an adventure.

Naomi enjoys experimenting with fun art supplies, holding to the philosophy that you can never have too many sketching pencils, watercolors, or cool Japanese brush pens. She lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her family and cats, loves rainy days, laughing with friends, and sneaking chocolate (and other sugary things) when no one is looking.
