The Adventuristas is a series of children’s books for boys and girls ages 4 to 8 designed to spark creativity and a sense of adventure in young readers. There are two books in the series so far: Maya's Magical Laundry Basket and Diya's Daring Blanket. Maya and Diya show how everyday objects can transform through the power of imagination and how we can all be adventuristas every day, anywhere. Countless adventures await!


Carolyn and John are global adventurers that love to explore and learn about new places. Through their travels, they have recognized that some of the best adventures are the ones you dream up in your mind with just a few props to get you started. That's how "The Adventuristas" series was born.

Today they live with their son and two rescue hounds on the side of a volcano in the Philippines, their home base for more adventures, real and imaginary!
