JULIETTE BENZ, co-author, lives in Denver, Colorado with her husband Tom, two dogs, two cats and two grown sons who come and go whenever they please. The construction and real estate industry plays an important part of her life, but she is inspired by writing. She grew up in South Dakota and was taught that hard work and manners are a part of life. Due to the ever changing laws of cannabis she feels it is important to educate the public on the laws, consumption and uses on this plant that has been voted into law. After being approached by Kris, who inspired Callie, they searched for information regarding cannabis and children's education. They found little that was suitable for the entire family. Their hope is that you enjoy Callie and Hana as much they enjoyed developing and watching them grow. KRIS MORWOOD, co-author of Callie Cannabis and Hana Hemp. While raising her now adult children, Kris saw a lack of factual information discussing cannabis and hemp from a parental perspective. She envisioned characters and books designed to normalize the conversation and reduce the stigma, in an easy-to-read format for any age. That is how the Callie series came to be. Ms. Morwood's background includes work in standards development for the cannabis and hemp industries as well as community relations and charitable donations for the oil and gas industry, yet she is most proud of her work and board service for numerous non-profits.
