About the Authors

Wayne A. Major and Ralphine Major both grew up in Corryton on their
family’s dairy farm in rural East Tennessee. Always surrounded by lots
of animals, they developed a love for them at an early age. Both went on to
graduate from The University of Tennessee with degrees in Business
Administration. Wayne majored in Marketing and is retired from the State of
Tennessee. Ralphine majored in Office Administration with a teaching
certification, and is retired from the Tennessee Valley Authority. Though
she has never had a journalism class, she uses her God- given talent as a
contributing writer of a weekly true human-interest column for The Knoxville
Focus ( ).

Years later, one Sunday morning Wayne was sitting in the choir at Wallace
Memorial Baptist Church in Knoxville, Tennessee, and something unexpected
happened. He was listening to a sermon about David and Goliath that was
directed toward the youth. Wayne heard a voice say, “You need to write
children’s books.” He even turned to see where the voice came
from. After hearing his story, Ralphine committed to the project as well.
While the brother/sister duo had helped teach kindergarten classes at church
and admired the children’s eagerness and willingness to learn, this
was a new venture and a step of faith.

Getting published did not happen overnight, but it was worth the wait
getting to work with Publisher Janie Jessee, Graphic Designer Tara Sizemore,
and the staff of Jan-Carol Publishing, Inc. The authors believe the great
chemistry they have with Illustrator Teresa Wilkerson is because she grew up
on a dairy farm in East Tennessee also. Wayne created the character, Piddle
Diddle, the Widdle Penguin, which is a registered trademark. Ralphine
vividly remembers how excited Wayne was when he shared about hearing a voice
that Sunday morning in the church choir. She is happy to be a part of this
adventure with Wayne and remembers well that Sunday night when they first
talked about this journey that started in the church choir! The authors are
proud to partner with two generous donors who have helped to put hundreds of
books in the hands of children. God does work in mysterious ways! Throughout
this process, Wayne and Ralphine have felt God’s hand guiding them and
realize how important it is to wait on God’s timing. They hold firm to
Proverbs 3:6 (KJV): “In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall
direct thy paths.”
