Mission Statement:

My mission is to delight the inner child of everybody, regardless of their age.

Some of my stories will be told in fun rhymes with animal themes.

Others will have an overtly Christian worldview. Any profit from sales will go to charities.

Leland P. Gamson

As far back as my memory goes, I have always been a storyteller. I took the youth camping when working in the Pocono Mountains as a nature counselor. Around the campfire, they always wanted a story. I found out that they preferred mine to classic campfire stories.

When I moved to Marion, Indiana, where the Wesleyan Headquarters was, I started writing stories for their Sunday School curriculum. I prefer writing books to magazine articles because they are permanent. Therefore, I started focusing on writing children’s books.

My children’s books are of two different types. Some use engaging rhyme, which stimulates the child’s imagination. Others are overtly Christian. They present a Biblical view with relatable Bible characters, be they human or beast.

Wherever I am, whether at work, the army, or church, I always write original songs and skits to entertain others. I am a regular contributor to the Flagstaff-Sedona Dog magazine.
