About Mary Beth Harris:
The idea to write her Austin book came from the desire to share the cool places in Austin with her young nieces who lived in New York, in hopes they would want to visit someday. When she realized that other people actually liked the book for their children, she decided it would be fun to combine her love of travel and dogs into her books while exploring and photographing other popular cities. The revised version of the first book became Jake and Angel’s A to Z Adventures in Austin.
As a child, Mary Beth had the opportunity to live overseas and realized the value of being able to experience some of the world’s famous places in person. As a teacher, she realized that many children don’t travel far outside their local area, so creating fun books about different cities with real photos and videos of the sights seemed like the perfect solution. She hopes that her books will expose people to cities they have never seen and inspire them to pursue their own adventures.
