About the Author
I’m currently in the midst of producing a series of kids picture books featuring fishing. Fishing is important to me and I wanted to share the fun and excitement of the sport with the next generation. Our kids need to view the outdoors and environment as a place to explore and enjoy while maintaining the heritage of fishing.
Fishing with family and friends offers an opportunity to create lasting memories. My dad took me fishing. I took my kids fishing. My kids took their kids fishing. It is my hope this chain will continue long into the future and provide more joy to life.
Walter the Wily Walleye
“Walter the Wily Walleye” is a story of a fish that invites and challenges a child to try and catch him. Walter provides a whimsical look at a fun sport. He encourages the reader and child to seek adventure with family and friends.
Fly-in to the Boonies
“Fly-in to the Boonies” is a story of a little boy and girl with dad and gramps on a wilderness fishing adventure. The family shares a campfire with s’mores and a shore lunch with fresh fish. Besides fishing, they scare an eagle, sight a moose and bears, encounter a beaver and hear the call of a loon.
Hear from My Readers
“This book is a great way to expose and introduce young children to ice fishing and get kids excited for outdoor activities. We need more kids reading more books like this!”
“Ice fishing is an inexpensive way to introduce kids to fishing: bringing the ice skates and football help to keep them entertained until the fish are biting. Reading Walter: Under the Ice brought back many fond memories on how I got my girls interested in the sport.”
