Katie and Sarah

After graduating from The University of Mississippi with a degree in Journalism and Minor in English, Katie enjoyed a career in pharmaceutical sales. She now uses her energy and passion for writing as a children's book author. Her desire to celebrate America from "rivers to shining seas" combined with her family's history of military service inspire her love of this country as reflected in the series. Katie, her husband and three daughters live in Houston.

Upon graduating from The University of Texas at Austin and earning her JD from The University of Texas School of Law and University College London, Sarah practiced as a litigation associate at an international law firm in Houston, Texas. Trading the excitement of the courtroom for the enjoyment of writing the River Royals children's book series, she lives in Houston with her husband and two young patriots, their son and daughter.

Katie and Sarah are represented by David Hale Smith of Inkwell Management in New York. They are also members of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators and the Writers' League of Texas.
