About the Authors

Jenise C. Richardson and Kiara A. Blair are mother and daughter co-authors. Jenise is a proud single mom to her daughter Kiara who at the age of six imagined a special place called Goobieland.

Kiara would sit for hours and draw the different kinds of characters that lived there. One character in particular she liked was Samantha, the boss of Goobieland.

After years of determination, they are proud to keep this magical place alive and share it with children all over the world.
