About the Author

 The Best Bear Hugs Ever is Scott's big debut. What began as an impromptu bedtime story for his two toddlers slowly blossomed into an award-winning children's book. He's currently working on his untitled sophomore effort. We can't wait to see what imaginative yarn he weaves next!
Scott has a degree in Landscape Architecture from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo.  Previously employed in landscape architecture, he happily traded in his 9-to-5 gig for a rewarding career as an elementary school teacher and children's author. The best part working as a teacher, he gets to spend more time with his two best bear huggers.

 "My wife and I saw this book at a book fair and both of us individually decided to buy it! The version we have has a golden background and cute illustration on the cover. The cover is great, the story is fun to read, and our grandson enjoyed my reading it to him. It has a heart-warming ending. I highly recommend this book."
