Publisher - Tommie LaBorde Townsley

Tommie LaBorde Townsley began her career as a children’s book author in 2005 after the devastation of two major hurricanes, Katrina and Rita. Mrs. Townsley experienced first-hand Hurricane Rita’s destructive force that struck Southwest Louisiana. The re-birth of Southwest Louisiana and the determination of the Cajun people have inspired Mrs. Townsley to write children’s books about the region she appreciates and loves.

Through her charming “Cajun Tales”, Mrs. Townsley strives to teach and inspire children everywhere about Louisiana and its unique culture. Presently, she has written and published seven books.

Her “Cajun Tales” titles are: Adolpheaux the Adventurous Dolphin, Clyde The Cajun Calf, Amos the Artistic Alligator, Dixie the Ole Dawg, Sabine’s First Family Reunion, Sampson The Spirited Horse, and Kyser the Singing Schnauzer.

She is also the Chairman of The Southwest Louisiana Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators Guild, a board member for The Children’s Museum of Lake Charles, Louisiana, a board member for the Lake Charles Symphony and Orchestra, and Publisher of Ally-Gator BookBites Publishing House.

Mrs. Townsley is very proud about opening her new bookstore, Ally-Gator Bookbites in downtown Lake Charles.

While Tommie has many varied interests, she is totally dedicated to the importance of reading to children. Mrs. Townsley believes that every child has the potential to do great things!
