LM Mann has a passion for working with children. For over 30 years, she has worked with summer camps across the US producing videos for camps. She has coached children in basketball and soccer programs through her church, and conducted creative writing workshops with schools and camps.
Lydia and her sister, C.J. Peterson, both award-winning authors, have formed their own publishing company, Texas Sisters Press, LLC. “We have goals for our own books, but we also want to reach out to other authors who are looking for assistance with publishing books,” LM Mann said.
Lydia hopes to inspire young readers to develop a passion for reading as she did as a child. “It is extremely important to help children develop a love of reading. Reading allows children not only to do better in school, but instills a love of learning, and supports their natural curiosity. I still remember the magic moment when my dad was reading me the same book that he had to read me every night before bed, when I realized I was actually reading the words on my own,” she said.

“While the stories are fiction, the journey is real.”
Jeff Cregg is a retired software developer who lives with his wife and cat in southeast Texas. A native of Oklahoma, he’s lived in four states and one Canadian province. As a youth in the 1960s, NASA’s Space Program not only captured his imagination but sparked his passion for science and nature. As an eight-year-old, the movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey, captivated him with its stunning visual effects and photographic innovations. This ultimately inspired his enduring interest in photography and cinema.
In college, Jeff’s attraction to science influenced him to pursue degrees in geology and computer science. After meeting and marrying his wife, his affinity for things scientific led him to explore the inexorable realms of empiricism and epistemology. Increasingly dissatisfied by the unrebutted popular, but secular, voices that dominated the scientific world, Jeff then embarked on a quest to determine if that world and the world of the Bible were as incompatible as those voices were claiming. Much to his delight (and relief), he discovered that they indeed were not—that they actually complement one another hand-in-glove.
Jeff has always enjoyed opportunities to express himself with what he regards as the most powerful tool ever devised—the English language. As early as High School, he entertained the idea of writing a book. Late in his career, and after a half-decade of being involved in the Intelligent Design movement, Jeff finally decided to try his hand at writing. At the age of 60, he published his first novel. He is now looking forward to using the extra time retirement offers to continue developing and exploring his newfound passion for writing.
