Amberly Kristen Clowe was a teacher in Humble ISD and lives in Kingwood with her husband and son. They also have two dogs and six fish. She writes every day and was inspired by her second graders to pen her first published children’s book Katie Ling Fashion Queen. Her students would come to class with a new scarf or a whole new outfit and were so excited to show her their newest thing.
Clowe said, “I do enjoy stylish boots, sunglasses, and scarves, so writing about them wasn't very hard... The idea for a picture book about a little girl loving fashion hit me in the early morning hours and I went with it”. The book is a lovely rhyming story about how seven year old Katie Ling has different interests than her peers. According to the book, most girls her age like ponies, but Katie has a passion for fashion.

Combine Girl Scout cookies with Texas cattle and the result yields one of this year’s Austin CowParade entries submitted by the Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council Troop #3849. Heidi Crockett, a volunteer for Girl Scout Troop #3849, said, “I’ve been tracking the Cow Parade opportunities for years now and when the CowParade came to Austin, I started thinking about ideas to submit”.
