Sonny Evans grew up in the Corn Belt but always dreamed of traveling to the Far East. 

After spending several years in Asia, he returned to the Midwest, with a beautiful wife and two small children.


Believing in the power of imagination and the utility of reading, Sonny set out to write stories that would impart positive messages to his kids.


When Sonny’s not working at his day job, he enjoys playing the guitar, coaching baseball, and swimming in his brother’s pool.
