Meet my associates, who I am blessed to call dear friends. I'm thankful for their dedication and commitment to this ongoing project of turning laughter into lessons, and lessons into a lifetime of learning.
Dianna DonFrancisco has taken the characters in my head and turned them into whimsical creations that stir and inspire us. The love and detail dances off the pages and into the hearts of everyone who plays along.
My talented editor Jodi MacNeal – without her, I would still be writing on Post-Its and napkins, both of which would be plagued by misspellings and grammatical errors. She has kept me on track and guided my footsteps in the process of creating and conquering this massive project.
Dianna DonFrancisco paints color-filled imagery that celebrates family, life and love. Add to that a little imagination and there you have it! For more than three decades, DonFrancisco has been designing for private and commercial entities in the form of large murals, wall art and graphics. She continues her artistic pursuits with children's book illustration, commercial design work and an annual line of unique ceramic ornaments. Dianna is an award winning signature member of the Boca Raton Museum of Art, Artist Guild and holds memberships with: The Graphic Artist Guild Palm Beach Cultural Council & Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.

Jodi MacNeal has spent more than 25 years looking after words – writing them, editing them, stringing them together in ways that inspire people to do (or feel) something special.

She has edited more than a dozen books, both fiction and non-fiction, and passionately pursues ministry communications as one of the ways she honors the Lord.
