Anne Kline is an author (illustrator/writer) of her own line of children's books owned under Kudzu Kidz, LLC. She is also a member of Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.
Kuddzu Kidz grew from inspiration while running trails in Atlanta, Georgia as Ms. Kline's trained for her first marathon. Kudzu is a vine that grows a foot-a-day in the southeastern United States that was brought over from Japan to help with erosion. It grows rapidly over top barns, houses, telephone wires or nearly anything that crosses its path creating unusual shapes. Ms. Kline thought they looked like cartoon characters. Who knew an 8 mile run would create the birth of Kaye, Narz and Scooter that she painted with acrylics onto cheap canvas shortly after her inspired run.
Sixteen years later, having experienced life a bit by having two beautiful daughters, losing four precious babies to miscarriages and struggling through a heart-wrenching divorce has taught her that no matter how messy life becomes, there is always something or someone to be thankful for in her life. This lesson has formed the mission statement of her Kudzu Kidz, LLC. and wants to share this message with young children everywhere. Stay positive and believe in yourself.
