Meet Bradley Zink - local children book author.
Born in Petaluma, California during the early 1970's, Bradley grew up with a passion for books. Instilled in him by his parents, and surrounded with a library of books by Dr. Seuss, Mark Twain and Charles Dickens, to name a few, he developed a true passion for reading.
After the birth of his son, Alex, and being a stay-at-home dad, he too instilled the power of reading in his son. Using Dr. Seuss as the building blocks for teaching him, Bradley aspired to create a book for Alex, and all children to enjoy.
Bradley also does FREE book readings and seed planting demos for schools/organizations. With his children's books, schools are able to hold fundraisers, with 60-75% of the net proceeds going back to the schools. Find contact info on his Facebook page.
