About the Creator

- Byron Gifford, Author and Illustrator -

Byron Gifford is a father focused on raising good men. Writing a book and publishing art were two life-long goals of his.

He’s deeply passionate about inspiring children and using imagination as a tool to enrich lives. In fact, every stuffed animal has a separate personality to bring laughs to bedtime rituals.


When he was young, you could always find him drawing and cleaning the pencil lead off his left hand. Today, you can hear him as the voice of his dog, dropping pop quizzes for his family during meals, and lifting heavy weight in his gym alongside his wife.


Byron lives in Virginia with his wife, their two sons, and dog, Koda.
