Working in environmental education since 2019, Ashley Young uses stories to educate, inspire, and capture the imagination. While working with kids who claimed to have all the answers, she found she needed a story to address that know-it-all behavior. So she set out on a big adventure to write her first children’s book, The Curious Little Snail.
Ashley’s stories strive to be powerful teaching tools for the parent or teacher. Her characters are often unexpected animals from her diverse experiences exploring nature and connecting students with the natural world. When she is not writing, painting, or drawing, you will find her in the garden or cuddled up with her pets and a good book in her northern Colorado home.

Courtney Hillesheim is a former New York public school teacher with over a decade of ESL teaching experience. After having her two daughters and returning to the classroom, she realized there is a vital need for parents to have access to the strategies, information, and perspectives that teachers use everyday in their classrooms. She created her company Parent Focus, becoming a parent educational coach and author with the focus of supporting parents in guiding their children through the 12 year process of formal education.
"As a teacher and a mother, I realize that I interact with my daughter differently than I would if I had never been in the classroom. Every parent deserves to know that there are techniques out there that can really impact how they interact with their children's educations. That's why I write my books!"

It's not how often you post and where, so much as what you post. Social Media graphics (the image that accompanies the wording) needs to catch the eye of the reader in about 3-5 seconds and then the wording of the post has to keep the interest and encourage the reader to click on the link to your sales channel (i.e. Amazon etc). Think how much information is thrown at you on your newsfeed everyday and how much of it you automatically dismiss as you scroll through. You need to make each post count!
