About

Hi, I'm Rick. (And that's Noah.)

I'm a writer, publisher and dad. I make the Once upon a Pancake books because I believe that play is the lifeblood of learning.

I hope these books help your kids maintain their sense of play while developing reading, writing, and storytelling skills. And I hope you're reminded how fun writing can be.
