Katie Cart has lived in the southern state of Georgia her whole life and graduated from high school in May of 2015 as valedictorian of her class. She faithfully attends Second Baptist Church, serving in the children’s ministry, sports ministry, and her College and Career life group. Katie has been a born again believer for 7 years now and is a dog sitter, babysitter, life guard in the summer, and princess on the weekends. She created her own children’s party entertainment service last year, dressing as princesses and providing games and entertainment for the guests. Last year, she made an appearance at 52 parties and several charity events, acquired 5 employees, and she now enjoys seeing returning customers this year. It was through her princess endeavor that Katie discovered her love of marketing and advertisement. She is attending a university this year, pursuing a bachelor’s degree in marketing with a minor in creative writing. Katie has recently created a blog about her favorite things including: fitness, travels, and every-day adventures. Her dream job would allow her to create an income remotely by blogging, writing, or marketing so that she can travel and eventually raise a family while still maintaining her career.
Tabitha Sanders currently lives in the boondocks of Arizona, surrounded by campsite-worthy plants and unexpected wildlife visits, where she greatly cherishes her times of musing and thought while sitting on her porch. She graduated from high school in May 2016 with the inclination to become a writer, and continues to foster this impression by use of the 6 notebooks she hoards at her desk and her good pals, Dictionary and Thesaurus. She loves to write fiction, with the hope of expanding people’s worlds while also encouraging people to take a deeper look at those around them (and hopes to do the same herself). It is her greatest dream to live a life in which she may write to support herself while traveling just about anywhere, living in an RV.

I grew up mainly in a suburb of Austin, graduated from high school in Austin, and graduated recently from the University of Texas at Austin. I married my wife in summer 2015, and we moved to a suburb of Denver, Colorado, where she is a nurse and I am a public school teacher. We attend Waterstone Community Church.”
