Kevin Treaccar has been a superhero, a spy, an outer space cowboy and more. Today, he’s a children’s author, writing and illustrating stories that send kids on adventures.
Adventure stories are more than escape. They’re avenues to stretch imagination, exploring outward and inward.
I am grateful to all of the authors who have sent me on adventures. I want to continue the favor and help send children on adventures of their own.
how do you pronounce your last name?
Tree-Acre. Like an acre of trees.
If you’re curious, it’s Italian “American-ized” by Germans. Yes, 3 languages in one name. If you’re not curious, I hope you skipped this paragraph.
how do you find/choose your stories?
I’m all about characters. I love characters with a purpose.
When I’m trying to think up a new character to play with, I cover the wall with characters, challenges and what’s driving them. I do that until someone gets me excited.
And when I can boil an exciting character and his or her story down to one sentence, I have no choice but to get started.
WILL THE TEXAS RANGERS WIN THE WORLD SERIES THIS YEAR?
