Originally from Memphis, Brittany graduated from the University of Mississippi where she met her husband, Kyle. They moved to Tupelo, his hometown, where she quickly fell in love with the charm of a smaller town as well as the Tupelo spirit.  She was inspired to capture the appeal in a children’s bedtime story book by writing and publishing Goodnight Tupelo.  Along with writing, Brittany enjoys reading, attempting yoga, and shopping online.  She currently lives in Tupelo with her husband and their dog, Sammie.

Brent resides in Tupelo with his wife, Jenny. They have 3 children; Gatlin, Fischer & Stella. He attended Mississippi State University in 1998, where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Landscape Architecture. Brent’s artwork has been featured at many Tupelo events. He has been an exhibitor at the Gumtree Festival & was also commissioned for the 2013 & 2014 Elvis Festival posters.  In June of 2015, Brent was commissioned by the Mississippi Development Council for the 36th Annual Mississippi Picnic in Central Park, NY.  Along with his passion for painting, Brent enjoys spending time with his family, which usually includes many hours on the baseball fields.
