Kevin Coolidge, author

Kevin Coolidge is not just the owner of From My Shelf Books & Gifts.
He's also the author of seven children's books and one fantastical adventure novella for adults.

Kevin is available for school presentations from kindergarten to the 4th grade.

Presentations include information on the writing process and encouraging fun in literacy.

He's available for interviews across the media spectrum. He's especially good on the radio, and as a bookstore owner, he can talk books, bookstores, small business, literacy, and most aspects of popular culture as well as his books.

Kevin resides in Wellsboro, just a short hike from the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon. When he's not writing, you can find him at the bookstore which he could not run without his lovely wife, several helpful employees, and two friendly bookstore cats, Huck & Finn.

He's recently become an honorary member of the Cat Board. When he's not scooping the litter box, taking out the garbage, or feeding Gypsy her tuna, he's writing more stories about the Totally Ninja Raccoons.

Kevin children's series, The Totally Ninja Raccoons, is specifically geared to reluctant readers.

*Series: The Totally Ninja Raccoons

*The first book is an origin story, setting up the Totally Ninja Raccoons with their ongoing antagonist, Gypsy the cat, who is in charge of the Cat Board. Cats, of course, want to take over the world but are too lazy to do it.

*Each book has the Totally Ninja Raccoons encountering a cryptid, but in a fun, non-threatening (not too scary!) way

*All books take place in Pennsylvania making it a nice local/regional selection and something that people won't find at every store and Scholastic book fair.

*Recently awarded "Story Monster Approval!" award
