About Liz Chaban
Jules of the World is written and illustrated by Liz Chaban. Chaban grew up in Northern California, and moved to Los Angeles where she graduated from The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. The main character, Jules, is inspired by her son Julius. Chaban decided to bring to life an equally adventurous vivacious character that was curious to explore all of the world’s wonders.

As a little girl Chaban’s parents were big advocates of learning about other cultures and travelling the world. Later as a young adult, Chaban had the opportunity to visit beautiful destinations throughout North America, Europe and the Caribbean. Inspired by her experiences, she started sketching away on her first book, Jules of the World: The California Caper. From San Diego to Shasta, Chaban began tackling some of California’s major destinations and secret treasures and transforming them into her first quirky, humorous and educational storybook.
