About Us

- Pattie Elle, Author, Illustrator -

Pattie Elle has lived the last 40 years in the beautiful state of Oregon.
She always wanted to write a children’s adventure story that took place along the Oregon Trail, since she and her family moved from Springfield, Missouri, and took the Oregon Trail route in modern times. She never realized that it would manifest into a tale about a remarkable Brahma chicken and the Bonny Button Books series. She lives in the Willamette Valley with her husband and enjoys spending time with her grandchildren and their chickens.
