Kristin Cooper-Herby has been coming up with stories in her head since childhood. Born in Northern California, Kristin moved to North Idaho when she was 12. The awkward years of being a homely, gawky, adolescent in a new place taught her to go with the flow and look at life with a sense of humor. Kristin began with acting out stories in play productions and commercials. Later in life, Kristin discovered a talent and passion for writing.

There are five books in the Stewy Baby series: Book 1- Stewy Baby Finds a Home, Book 2- Stewy Baby and the Cone of Shame, Book 3- Stewy Baby Meets Santa’s Creepy Elves, Book 4- Stewy Baby Gets New Neighbors and Book 5- Stewy Baby Visits the Fantastic Fernan Falcons.

All Stewy Baby books are told from Stewy’s point of view. The books are full of humor and lively stories sure to please both boys and girls. 

Kristin lives in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho with her husband Dan and Stewy Baby. Kristin loves to share her passion for reading and writing with elementary school children.

Stewy Baby was born in Superior, Montana. When she was eight weeks old she was adopted by her special human, Kristin who brought her to live in beautiful Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Stewy loves long hikes, warm snuggles, lots of treats and visiting elementary schools and children’s hospitals.

Stewy Baby is a certified therapy dog.
