Meet Our Authors


K. L. Cooper

K. L.  has a son and a daughter, and she loved sharing her passion for books and stories with them as they were growing up.  She enjoys working with children and was employed as a preschool teacher for more than five years. While teaching, her favorite activity was always storytime. 

K. L’s love of children’s stories led her to write her own children’s books including, “You Can’t Play Tag With a Porcupine,” and “There’s a Fluffle in the Grass.”  She is currently working on another children’s book which she hopes to have out this fall, and she is playing with the idea of writing a series, which will be aimed at older children.
