Virginia author, Rodney Evans has published a debut series of children’s books designed to entertain, educate and enlighten children and adults.
“Never in a million years did I imagine becoming a writer. One night an on-the-spot joke I made transformed family dinner into a 30 minute giggle fest. My family insisted I write and turn the joke into a story. I’d spent my professional career writing business reports, briefs and memos so terror doesn’t begin to describe the feeling when I first placed myself in a chair to write creatively. Today its a million smiles later and I know following my family’s wishes was the right thing.”
