Juliette Goodrich, Author and Emmy award winning television news anchor, was inspired to write "The Train of Lights" after riding on the train with her children. A native of the area, she enjoys writing childrens books about local landmarks. She also wrote "The Little Light Shines Bright" which celebrates the worlds longest burning lightbulb at a fire station in Livermore, California. Her three children inspire her to keep writing and often times they help her craft the storyline to make it fun to young readers.

Dick Jones is a retired Component Design Engineer, Commercial Pilot and Lecturer. He met Juliette when they worked together on the 100th Anniversary Party for the Centennial Bulb.
Dick, and his wife Dodie, have been married over 42 years and have 2 daughters, and 6 grandkids. He says Juliette is the creative one, and he provides the inspiration to support her efforts. Dick has over 40,000 pictures in stock and you can see more of his work at his links below.
