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.
