About the authors:
MARTHA FAULKNER enjoys combining three of her greatest loves: children, writing, and humor. She has taught elementary for over twenty-five years and currently teaches third grade in Aledo, Texas. Martha uses her stories to teach writing skills to her “Frog” students as she shares her love of writing.
Martha lives with her husband Jim on a small ranch in the West Texas town of Weatherford. She has three grown children, two daughters-in-law, and three granddaughters with whom she looks forward to sharing her stories.
A member of Trinity Writers Workshop since 2000, Martha is also a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Although the author of many short stories and humorous poems, this is Martha’s first children’s book.
JOANNE FARIES, originally from the Philadelphia area, lives in Texas with her husband Ray. Published in Doorknobs & Bodypaint, she also has poems in Silver Boomer anthologies. Joanne is the film critic for the Little Paper of San Saba.

NANCY LYNN was born in Fort Worth, Texas, grew up in the countryside west of the city, and returned to live in Fort Worth. She attended TCU and has a degree in education. Although she worked in banking for many years, she is also a contract writer and continues her hobby of writing short stories. THE AIREDALE'S TALES is told by Bentley the Airedale, who lived with Nancy Lynn for 12+ years. You will see that he was a charmer and a rascal and wanted to share his adventures about life on earth (Fort Worth in particular) with everyone who reads about them. Be prepared to laugh and maybe cry a little as you read THE AIREDALE'S TALES.

Ann resides in Fort Worth with her son, two boisterous dogs and a somewhat elusive cat and is currently working on her 9th cozy mystery.
