RADIO SHOW INTERVIEW October 19, 2017: 

Martha earned her M.Ed. at the University of Maryland.  Now retired, she previously worked as a special educator in Hopkinton, NH, in the roles of Transition Coordinator and Specialist in the Assessment of Intellectual Functioning.  The Haley Mae stories came to life at the request of her granddaughter.  She lives in the beautiful states of New Hampshire and Colorado.



Phyllis holds a BFA in Interior Design from Syracuse University School of Art and has enjoyed a 45-year career as a commercial interior designer and founder of Stibler Associates Space Planning and Interior Design LLC. She now combines her rendering skills and a love of watercolors with another long enjoyed interest – children’s books.  She lives on Great Island, New Castle, NH.



Martha and Phyllis have been dear friends since meeting in college in 1970. They enjoy traveling together and the creative process of making stories come alive for children of all ages.
