Julie Houston Rogers, a retired fifth-grade teacher, has always loved reading and making up stories to share with children. So she decided to write stories for children about history and science. She lives in a small South Georgia town with her husband, Doyle; her Yorkie, Lucy Loo; and two cats, Spanky and Bitsy. Their three children, Buck, Cody, and Beki have always said their home was as wild and funny as a TV comedy. So, they left home when they were ready to start their own sitcom.
