About Us

- Leia Barrett, Author -

Hi!  I'm a new author and lifelong musician.  My passion is creating stories and presentations that inspire children to begin their musical journey.   My husband and I will be filling this website with engaging children's books, educational resources, and music, so stay tuned!

- Candace Neal, Illustrator -

Candace Neal is an actor and artist based in Orlando, FL. After years of performing on stages across the country (inclusive of Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Orlando, and narrator of the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra’s Young People’s Concerts), she is tickled pink to bring her silly characterization and playful spirit to the page.


Candace began illustrating children’s tales for orchestral family concerts in 2017 and now works as a freelance designer who specializes in portraits, home illustrations, logos, social media graphics, and children’s book illustrations. Having taught theatre to children since 2006, Candace has a special place in her heart for works geared to young people. She is thrilled to be on this team with the ever-talented Leia and Drew!
