I’m a children's book author in Hamilton, Ohio, and I am happy to announce a new type of book from me - a children's picture book. Bobby Button Goes to School is now available! I have also published two fictional character awareness books. The characters in my books learn about excellent character development on/off the field, in the classrooms, and in life. I encourage students to develop good character habits. Both books explore special needs like Down syndrome and physical disabilities. We discuss good sportsmanship and I bring up many character words and their meanings. Each book captures some of my experiences as a baseball and softball coach for over twenty years. I also visit elementary classrooms and give engaging interactive character presentations.
