Tawney Anderson grew up in an untamed area in Oregon. The woods was her favorite place to explore with her siblings and their collie dog, Laddie. After graduating from the University of Washington and starting a family, Tawney and her husband insisted on raising their daughter away from the city lights, in a horse community near Los Angeles. There the family raised horses, chickens, dogs, cats, birds and any other creature that may have needed their help. Tawney has written and directed many plays for community theater and is excited to continue her journey inspiring young readers.
