Brad Herzog is the author of more than three-dozen books for children and four titles for adults, including three critically acclaimed travel memoirs that the American Book Review has deemed "the new classics of American travel writing." Brad's series of alphabet picture books for Sleeping Bear Press include popular titles like H is for Home Run and S is for Save the Planet.

As a freelance magazine writer, Brad has been honored several times by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), including a Grand Gold Medal for best feature article of the year.
