About the Author

Author Info

Julie Barker is a wife and mother of three who was born and raised in west Texas.  She maintained her west Texas roots into college when she attended Texas Tech University in Lubbock, receiving a degree in social work.  Julie has grown up surrounded by the ranching heritage and felt drawn to share this way of life through the adventures of the brave little cowboy jackrabbit, Hitchin' Post.

Hitchin' Post marks Julie's debut into the world of children's literature.  What began as a fun, creative project with her mother, Carolyn Altman, soon developed into her first completed children's book.   Carolyn is the illustrator of the bright and cheerful images found in the Hitchin' Post series, which helps bring to life the adventures on the 6Bs' Ranch.  Old Hitch is back in the second book Hitchin' Post and the Tornado Twistin' 6Bs' 4th of July Celebration, available now!
