As a stay-at-home dad who’s working hard to have a successful writing career, I’ve found that multi-tasking is essential. So, I decided to teach my daughter geography while keeping tabs on my progress toward my writing goals.

I hope my daughter will get to do lots of coloring … while learning all 50 states. Keep an eye on this page for updates.
My work has appeared in the following publications:
