Evergreen Middle School publishes "The Fire Book" to resounding success! Even featured in PortlandTribune!
I've been a guest speaker at the Evergreen Middle School a couple of times, and I always enjoy the energy and enthusiam there. The students are engaged, articulate about their thoughts and dreams, and have amazing teachers that encourage them to achieve big things. This is the same school where the much lauded "Harry Potter Classroom" is part of the fabric of their education. How cool is that? This newest accomplishment is just one of many to come this amazing group of creatives and their inspiring teacher in Sean Fishback!! It was a real pleasure to work with them in bringing The Fire Book into the world, and I'm honored to have been a part of their great endeavor. :) #BelieveInWonder

I'm blessed. I have a wonderful wife, beautiful children, and I get to wake up every morning and tell stories. My life is filled with wonder :) Today is my birthday, so I thought I would share some of that wonder with everybody. Almost 15 years ago, I wrote and illustrated my first book, and now I'm finally sharing it with the world (thanks to Josie's persistence that we needed to get it out there.) I was a bit of a scared kid, but I had a family that always encouraged me to strike out and try everything. This book is about that - not letting fear stand in the way of discovery and joy. If my life can mean anything, this is it - wonder lies on the other side of fear. So reach for it. Thank you all. #BelieveInWonder
