About Us

Tara Luebbe and Becky Cattie

It all started in 2014 when Tara decided it was finally time to act upon her desire to write picture books.  She sent a first draft to Becky, her sister, for feedback.   When Becky sent it back with major revisions, they decided to write as a team.

As kids, Tara and Becky lived in King of Prussia PA, Andover MA, Saratoga CA, and finally settled in Atlanta GA.   They have two brothers Josh and Ryan.
