George was raised climbing the mountains and fishing the lakes and streams of the Sierra Nevada mountains. At a young age he started to appreciate the beauty of the earth and the life upon it. Many of the stories he has written are first hand experiences; such as the lady bugs hatching on the eastern shore of Lake Tahoe - as is talked about in The Little Helper. George is a wonderful storyteller. Whether he's conveying his first composition about Emily the Goose or talking about one of his real-life adventures exploring Tahoe. George entertains, evokes emotion and even teaches. George's motivation is to produce children's literature that elevates values. He also desires to highlight awareness of children's development as well as their wit and humour. George has a great respect for a child's perspective on nature; the pure relationship of the two is an ongoing theme in his writing.
