Justin Noble (Author, Series Co-Creator) is a certified nutrition coach, children's book author, and long time lover of children's stories. Raised in the Texas Hill Country, Justin relocated to New York City, where he developed the idea for My Body Village. One summer day, he walked into the vitamin section of his local pharmacy and was struck with an idea. If you replace the second "i" in vitamin with the letter "e," you get "vita-men." He thought to himself, "What if vitamins were put to life?" With that inspiration, he came up with the idea for a children's book where these Vita-Men could interact with human organ characters to teach children how their bodies work. From that, the concept for My Body Village was born. That Fall he wrote the first book in the series, Artie's Party: Featuring the Vita-Men!.
