Illustrator of Kohola King of the Whales and Have You Seen Claudia?
A mostly self-taught artist/illustrator, Robinson credits Pablo Picasso and Norman Rockwell as early influences. "I remember borrowing books of theirs from the library when I was younger," he said. "What I liked about Picasso was the energy in his art, and with Rockwell, his storytelling ability, the composition and body language of his people."

Julie was broken at an early age and learned to trust in God. Her Heavenly Father carried her through her darkest days and through a deep healing and restoration period. Julie is a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a teacher, a counselor, and a woman who has experienced the immense grace of God. She is a Humpty Dumpty, like so many others, who has miraculously been put back together by the King. Julie has recently obtained her counseling license in Marriage and Family Therapy, and daily works with the people of Hawaii to fight against abuse and help others on their journey to wholeness.
In 2004, Julie and Vince were called into ministry where they authored a 3-part Humpty Dumpty book series. In 2010, they formed their own non-profit called Cracked Egg Ministries to help other wounded souls on their journey to wholeness and find healing through the King.
