A Visit with Children's Author
Tuesday, May 12th, 2015
In 2006, Artie Knapp wrote a children's story titled The Wasp and the Canary. Artie had never intended on becoming a children's author, but after that story was published it would lead him on a journey that has become his life's calling. To date, he's had over 30 children's literature works published that includes books, videos, stories and poems. These works have been published in over 250 publications across the world. In India, prestigious publishers Orient Black Swan and Oxford University Press have both used Artie's stories in course books across the country. Among his writing credits are the children's books, Stuttering Stan Takes a Stand, and Living Green: A Turtle's Quest for a Cleaner Planet, a shortlist finalist for the national Green Earth Book Award. Artie is a member of The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, and graduated from Ohio University. He lives in Cincinnati, Ohio, with his wife and daughter.
