Meet Coach Ben is the first installment in a brand new series of children's books that features a diverse cast, positive models of masculinity, and practical parenting advice, all rendered in beautiful hand-drawn comic-book style illustrations!
In Meet Coach Ben, Lucas gets to spend all week with his cousin Hasan, and Hasan can't wait to introduce him to his favorite teacher ever: Coach Ben! Hasan says Coach Ben is so strong that he can do anything, but that makes Lucas nervous. When an accident brings Lucas to tears, he can't help but wonder: does Coach Ben ever cry?
Coach Ben's Parenting Playbook
Each book in the Coach Ben series ends with a page from "Coach Ben's Parenting Playbook." Drawing on my experience and research as an educator and school counselor, the Playbook provides practical parenting advice tied to the events of the book. In the first book of the series, Meet Coach Ben, the playbook shares some "Do's" and "Don'ts" for how to productively guide a crying and distressed child through their intense emotions in a positive way.

As a children's book author, I provide a unique opportunity for kids to learn about important topics in a fun, engaging, and age-appropriate way.
During my author visits, I'll read my book out loud, answer questions, and lead activities that encourage conversation and exploration around topics like empathy, kindness, and healthy relationships.
