HMA Publishing, publisher of whimsical books, stories, and cards operates out of Friday Harbor on the magical island of San Juan, 80 miles north of Seattle, WA.
Owner, RA (Rebecca) Cook, writer, illustrator and creator of CALVIN SPLINTER & HIS SPLENDID SPLINTER IDEAS initially formed the organization to house her work. “These creations need a place to live outside my head so I formed HMA, which stands for the first initial of each of my grandson’s names: Haakon, Marius and Anders.
“Since they were tiny children, they have been beta listeners, colorers and critiquers of ‘Grandma’s stories.’ Bless those boys. They are my best and worst critics. I’ve dedicated Calvin Splinter to them.”
