Meet Our Fabulous Author Susan H Hines

Hello, I am Susan H Hines, the creative force behind the beloved Buckley children’s book series, inspired by the escapades of my cherished Standard Schnauzer, affectionately called “Buckley”. Proudly owning TJP Publications LLC, my mission is to engage children in developing early literacy skills through imaginative storytelling. As the CEO and founder of TJP Publications LLC, I use this platform to highlight my own children’s books, activity materials, and character merchandise. By introducing a self-publishing platform, a noticeable increase in accessibility and interest among young readers has occurred. I engage with students from kindergarten to third grade through school visits, library events, and career day activities, sparking their interest in reading and writing. The positive response to the Buckley series has motivated young students to create their own stories.

Meet Our Fabulous Author Maygon Lucart

I am a huge bookworm! (Hence why the main character of my story has a book in her purse.) When I was little, I had a major interest in reading but my love for books really developed my freshman year of college (2005). I have since then kept a list of every single book I have read and it gives me great satisfaction to continue to add to it. To this day, I am either reading books, researching books, buying books, adding books to my “To Be Read” list, and now, writing books!

Meet Our Fabulous Author Cherie Okonski

Art has always been a big part of my life and being a portrait painter defined me for a long time. Since writing came much later in my life, I still consider myself an artist who writes. My confidence has grown in recent years and I have to say I now enjoy writing just as much as art.
