Richard Garrett Dews continues to live the American Dream. This native Texan's first career in computers culminated in his founding, leadership and public offering of a software corporation (One Up). He retired, at age 32, on his ranch near Big Timber, Montana. Richard realized his childhood dream of becoming a pilot, as a commercial multi-engine instrument-rated pilot and a certified flight instructor. In Richard's second career (aviation), he founded a flight school (Angel Air) and went on to become an airline pilot with Big Sky Airlines. Richard's first novel, Which Way is Up, will be published this year. His first children's book, Mike Monkey Has 5 Bananas, is a pre-K and Kindergarten counting book. Richard also wrote and produced a sing-along companion song, by the same name, which is available now from online music stores. His second children's book, Timmy Toucan Dropped 10 Guavas, is currently in illustration. It should be available in late June, 2012. Richard's third children's book, Jimmy Giraffe Loves to Laugh, is currently under development. It should be available in late July, 2012. All three books will be available in coloring book form soon. Richard Garrett Dews is an avid world traveler, a constant entrepreneur, and a prolific and diverse published author. Richard is a proud husband of 25 years to Jane (a Kindergarten teacher), and a proud father of Wes and Alli.
