Tannya L. Derby -  Editor and Art Director

   
Tannya is a children's book author and illustrator. She has found writing and art is her joy in life, so she made it her career. Now, as a publisher, she helps others to make their dreams come true. She is educated with a BFA in Creative Writing for Entertainment and a Masters Degree in Creative Writing. She is also an autodidact (self taught) in illustrating, screenwriting, and painting for over 20 years. 

Her love for art and writing began in my childhood with drawing and painting pictures with my mother and writing small stories. As a children's book author and Illustrator, she is able to incorporate my artistic ability and my writing skills together to help in publishing others work of art.


She is also a published poet of “Trying Hard to Understand” and "Dance the Dance."  In November 2015, she proudly self-published her first children’s book, "Joy of Sisters" which was a personal project. 

At this time, she is focused on publishing others works of art, as well as, writing and illustrating children's books for herself.
    

Todd J Derby​ - Content Editor 

    
Todd is the content reader and editor. Todd loves books and is well read. In raising many children he understands what will hold their attention. Todd works in the IT industry by trade, but is a kid at heart and loves books. When he read the stories he looks for likeability and understanding. He also reads for accuracy of content since he is walking encyclopedia. He feels it is important to hold the attention of not only the children, but the adult in some ways.
