Kurt Wagner


Kurt Wagner and his wife, Tina, live in Bellevue, Iowa. They are the parents of 4 beautiful children, and Christmas has always been their favorite holiday, full of special family traditions.

Kurt has dreamed of writing children's books for many years, and finally decided to pursue his dream. He included many of his own family traditions in writing "The Mouse Who Stirred at Christmas". Kurt incorporated the magic and excitement of the holidays and aimed to write his book through the eyes of a child.

As the book evolved, so did Kurt's main character, Anthony, an adorable little mouse that lives with a loving family who also cherish family traditions and the magic of the holidays. Kurt is currently in the process of writing his second book, to be released in the summer of 2017.

What do your readers mean to you?
My readers responses are the highlight of me writing this book. I could not believe the joy I felt when people complimented me on the book, or told me how much they enjoyed it.
What are you working on next?
I am currently working on a Halloween themed book, and am hoping to have it available late spring 2017. Anthony will be back and preparing for Halloween and all the fun activities that we all enjoy during the fall season.
