About The Author

Coni Knepper is a children’s books author whose passion is to write about the children living in Tanzania, East Africa, where she and her husband reside full time. She brings life and humour to what could be considered a culture of poverty.

She and her husband have three grown children and eight grandchildren. All of whom visit when they can. Social media is their best friend when it comes to seeing their grandchildren.

They started a non-profit, Hope of the Nations, in 2003. Opening a Primary School for street kids and those who would not have a chance for an education is a dream come true.
Now, in 2020 the school is completely managed by Nationals. All the teachers are Tanzanian. Coni loves to encourage them and bring them goodies, but she has handed over the reins to the leadership she poured into for over fifteen years.
