About Cool Book Lady
Welcome! Thank you for stopping by! I’m Lea Diaz, a Brand Partner and Educational Service Representative with PaperPie and PaperPie Learning! Based in Lake Station, Indiana, I am thrilled to introduce you to the most amazing children’s books! My family fell in love with these books and I know your kiddos will love them, as well.
A little about me…My professional background is medical transcription. I saw the books at a vendor show and wanted to have a party. I loved the books SO much that I decided I needed a permanent discount for my family so I purchased the Starter Kit and hosted my first show. I took some time off after that as I was pregnant with my second child. About a year later, I got back in the swing of things. I currently work my book business part time for some added income to help do fun things with my kiddos. I love that with PaperPie I can work around my family life. I have the ultimate flexibility and can make sure my family stays my #1 priority. I can be creative with how I approach my business.
I love being a mommy to two active children. My husband and I love going to the zoo or the museum and seeing the wonder in our kid’s eyes when they discover something new.
