Graduated from The Evergreen State College – Tacoma Wa. in 1996. This is my second book. My fi rst book, Bucket Head and Friends Big Adventure was published in 2008. I grew up in a large close family with nine brothers and sisters. My hobbies are camping, hiking, skiing, bike riding, fi shing, working out and spending time with my friends. I love the outdoors! I’ve done volunteer work over the years coaching high school football, little league baseball and basketball. Employed for the state of Washington for over 28 years working for the Department of Corrections. I like spending time reading to kids at the Residential Parenting Program in Gig Harbor where I got my idea to write children books. I do community work as a member of A. Philip Randolph Institute – Tacoma Chapter. Enjoy this book and take care of each other! Thank you.
