Jeff Bilman


For a long time I dabbled in cartooning, illustration and film. This included: writing and illustrating cards for a major greeting card company, awards for my comedy short film "The Brink", and a couple feature-writing assignments for producers in Hollywood (boy, that was hard).

My focus switched to writing books for children when I began reading to my boys at bedtime. It's a great way to connect, even if the rest of the day has been too busy. I wanted to write a book that boys would love, and their parents might also enjoy reading.

I like humor - a lot. I also see great value in the tradition of storytelling to demonstrate concepts that may help children traverse some of life's difficulties (such as being called 'Farty bum breath').
