We're authors, mothers and friends who share a love for our country borne from our families' military backgrounds. Our fathers served as Army and Navy officers during The Vietnam War and our grandfathers served as officers in World War II with the Air Force, Army and Navy. We grew up realizing the value of freedom and appreciating the sacrifices soldiers make that enable us to live in "the land of the free and the home of the brave."

After growing up in Houston and Tyler, Texas, we married, had children and wanted to share our love of America with our families. Thus, Eliza Jane was born! We created the River Royals series to introduce all children to our beautiful country "from rivers to shining seas." Each book aims to pass down our sense of patriotism and provide fun facts about history and geography to little patriots everywhere. Grab your inner tube and jump in! The water is fine and the adventure is just beginning!
