Author Cheryl is a grandmother who began writing letters to her grandchildren when they were born. She was inspired to create her book to safeguard her special treasures. She has a background in social services but is an entrepreneur at heart and once owned a small independent bookstore.
As a lover of books, it was a natural progression for her to publish one of her own. Cheryl understands that as we move into the digital age it is important to keep our connections real and tangible. With her book, you can give your children and or grandchildren your heartfelt letters written on real paper and kept in a real book.
Illustrator Avalon lives in Agassiz, BC on a dairy farm. She is an avid horsewoman and has trained, coached and shown horses for over 20 years. She began her art career doing custom horse portraits on wine glasses and mugs. Her work was so well received she went on to other animals and then landscapes and people.
Her motto is ‘Be Brave’ and it shows in her constant broadening of her work using different mediums and materials.

She is very open to trying new subject matters and loves a challenge.
