Rad Dads and Me

I have a series about a fourth grade boy named Bobby Ellis-Chan. His father is an ex-NFL football player turned SAHD (stay at home dad).


So imagine my delight when I received a letter from Jason Sperber, a SAHD/blogger who ldentified with the dad in the books!


We've become friends and not long ago I was invited to be a special guest at Skylight books in Los Angeles for an awesome event celebrating the release of RAD DAD: DISPATCHES FROM THE FRONTIERS OF FATHERHOOD . . .

(That's Jason with anthology author/editor Tomas Moniz and Mista Cookie Jar.)

Tomas was up first and told us about the anthology, then read. As you can see, there was a totally kid-friendly vibe in bookstore . . .

Next was Jason and he read a very heartfelt essay . . .

(Here's Jason's blog about the event.)

When it was my turn, I read from BOBBY THE BRAVE (SOMETIMES) . . .

The icing on the cake as when Mista Cookie Jar sang and the kids began to dance with Peepy

Peepy was thrilled when she serenaded . . .
