Children's book author and full-time mom of three beautiful children, Julie Barker, has completed her second book in the "Hitchin' Post" series. "Hitchin' Post and the Tornado Twistin' 4th of July Celebration" will be out July 2018. With a romping, stomping, 4th of July theme, and the same fun rhyming scheme, Julie continues to instill the ranching heritage along with valuable life lessons in her books.

"Hitchin' Post" received the 2017 Reader's Favorite Gold Medal award for Children's General Genre, and has been nominated for a TopShelf magazine award that will be announced in September 2018.

It is funny how inspiration and writing comes in waves for me. One day the words can flow so freely, making me so excited to write more and more, then suddenly when I sit down to write again another day, an nothing. I have found that with me personally, I have to designate a time for writing, and I really have to have quiet around me. Since that rarely happens in my household of a husband and three children, my designated quiet time is Sunday morning about 6:30-7:30.

However, so far, it has been that seeing that I actually do have a talent for writing and being able to share that talent and my thoughts with others has to be the best thing. (less)

Carolyn Altman Hitchin Post/Julie Barker, Author - I had the opportunity to illustrate this cute story of a little jack rabbit and the things he learned about life while living on a ranch. It is a great story and lesson about life for children of all ages.
