About the Author

Tanja Huston is a wife, mother, speaker, author and cancer survivor who has a renewed look on life. Tanja makes a difference in the lives of children by sharing hope and faith through storytelling.

Through the eyes of children, life’s challenges are not always easy to understand. But, through Tanja’s books, children find hope for a better tomorrow with a little help from family and friends.

“No Playing Frisbee Today,” centers on Juju’s mommy having cancer. Juju realizes that what happens in life can be scary and not always easy to understand.

In Tanja’s first book, “Juju’s Big Surprise,” Juju’s mommy has a surprise. With this surprise, Juju finds himself sharing the spotlight with others – not always an easy task for children.

Tanja is an author of children’s books and has an MBA from Webster University, St. Louis.

Tanja often says, “I leave a legacy of storytelling and mentoring others. My hope is to make a difference in the lives of our future – our children – by sharing hope and faith through my books.

“Through my stories, all voices are heard, faces are seen, and faith sets the path for the future.”

Through my stories, all voices are heard, faces are seen and faith sets the path for the future.

Life’s family make-up is changing and through Huston’s books, she introduces the nucleus family unit in her books. Huston was inspired to write books because as a child, she did not see herself in dolls or books. It is so important to include groups not widely represented to ensure all children feel like they belong. Juju is the main character and one that children can relate to as her books are written “through the eyes of children.” His family is inter-racial who pull together through difficult times.

"LOOK INSIDE. I SEE ME. OH, HOW GREAT I CAN BE!"
