Fred Olds


Fred Olds has crafted dozens of stories over the years and has been involved with various writing and critique groups. At 92, he is a devoted husband and proud father and grandfather living in Central Illinois. After retirement from the Postal Service as an electronic technician, he finally has time to concentrate on writing. A true storyteller at heart, his first love is writing children's books with an occasional murder mystery thrown in for a change of pace. Check out his series for kids, Read-Aloud Stories with Fred, The Dog and the Flea (book one of the Perky Pet Problems series), and his first book for adults, The Hobo Who Wasn't, an exciting detective story.
