Bio

Doug’s storytelling is based on the idea that children and adults should be at play as much as possible.

He believes play includes two intertwined qualities: awe and concentration. Awe is the ability to see the beauty and wonder of life in anything and everything; concentration is a focus on the joy of experiencing simple, everyday activities. 

Doug is available for readings and signings at your school, organization, or special event. He reads Who’s Got the Face? and The Fable of the Snake Named Slim at libraries, bookstores, primary and elementary grades K–3, book fairs, nonprofit children’s programs, and fundraising events. He also teaches parents how to optimize the experience of reading to a child.

He holds a BS in Communications from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Communications and an MA in Communications from William Paterson University.

Both Who’s Got the Face? and The Fable of the Snake Named Slim captured the interest of not only our Kindergarteners, First and Second graders but their teachers as well.

You have distinguished yourself as an outstanding children’s author and presenter. Thank you for helping us promote the joy of reading to our students.

Thank you once again for the fabulous program you put on for our students in March. Your presentations to the children from kindergarten through second grade classes were outstanding!
— Principal, Lincoln Park, NJ

It was our extreme pleasure to have you as guest author in our primary school last month. You displayed such positive, flexible energy when planning with us to organize the workshops with our 300+ students that we knew the day would turn out as fantastic as it did!

The small group approach with our students demonstrated your clear understanding of the developmental ages of the audience. The sessions were not only lots of fun, but cleverly embedded with strong lessons in ELA and Writing Workshop!
