Baker & Goodman
Nurseketeer Series Authors
Life is always better if experienced with friends. The Nurseketeers Series characters were created as a result of people watching prior to the start of a moving one summer afternoon. Then attributing personal characteristic notes, such as color of hair or clothing, to four women. Assigning names to each such as Ms. Brown, Ms. Blue, Ms. Red, and Ms. Gray. Each of the Nurseketeers main characters retained components from the original notes and framed the development of the characters in the Series: Brown became Frannie Braun, Blue is Leslie Bleu, Red is Robin Hart, and Gray is Katie Grayfox. We embellished those original ideas during the development of the first book, The Wake-Up Call.
