About the Author

Jim Knapp, born in Philadelphia, Pa., was raised in Pleasant Mount, Pa., a small rural area in Northeast Pa. His brief notoriety came when as a young teen, he discovered a mysterious stone with strange carvings of mountains, trees, the sun, and unusual script carved in the upper left corner.
The Knapp Pleasant Mount Stone is the inspiration for his first book, “I Woke Up.”
“I personally have spent a good part of my life taking chances or leaps of faith if you will, especially in my professional career. Sometimes the decisions I've made have been quick from the hip and stupid, and sometimes they pay off! This book has some of those qualities.”
Jim Knapp still resides in Pleasant Mount next to the family Homestead, with his wife, Maria.

    Brought back my childhood. We had a few cats that indeed acted like Ninja's. I had one that sounded like Godzilla when she meowed! Loved it!
