About the Author
Bill Buckbee is a country-living guy who enjoys golfing and fishing in the little free time he has. He is married to his work and is dedicated to his community. As a full-time job, he runs the nonprofit park and museum that he grew up going to as a child. He has spent years as a youth coach of basketball, baseball and football, and has even coached semi-pro women's football. He has spent time as a volunteer firefighter and is an active Freemason. In addition, Bill was elected as state representative in 2016 to the Connecticut General Assembly, which he highlights as the honor of a lifetime to represent the town he loves so dearly. Bill has spent more than 25 years playing softball and recreational league football, and his teammates are family to him. One of three kids, Bill takes family seriously, but always with giant hugs and bigger smiles. A proud uncle to a niece and four nephews (who call him Uncle Buck), he can never see enough of them.

Santa Buckbee is the best! He is the true personification of the spirit of giving and kindness and love. Enjoy reading his stories of fun and kindness. There is still magic on the earth!

-Dr. William Petit, President, Petit Family Foundation and Connecticut State Representative

Bill Buckbee quite literally embodies the spirit of the season. His love of all things Christmas shines through on every page.

After reading Behind the Beard, I can honestly say that time travel does exist. It brings you back to childhood when things were so much simpler. It reminds you of the memories you had and helps you create new memories with your family.

-Christian A. Carroccio, father of 2

A book written from the heart that inspires readers to reflect and explore their own hearts. The stories shared about a special season touched me deeply and stirred within me my inner child, reaffirming the beautiful magic that exists at Christmas time, regardless of your age.

-Deborah Rose, journalist and mother of 2

Behind the Beard is a wonderful book. Every parent should read it as it gives you insight into how to make Christmas even more special for your children! Everyone has a Santa inside of them. Thanks for reminding us of that, Bill Buckbee.

-Cathy Rehaag, mother of 3

As someone who has photographed a lot of Santas, Bill Buckbee has a most magical way of expressing the true spirit of Santa, which is enjoyed by both children and adults alike.

-Nicole Bourgeois Believe, Picture This Photography

Behind the Beard is an amazing book that brings back so many wonderful memories of my childhood. Not only does it bring back memories, but it also sparks the old-time Christmas spirit, bringing out the child in your heart who still lives.
