Rick and Ryan Goldsberry are a father-son dynamic duo and the writer-illustrator team behind the children’s picture book Floater.
Most of Rick’s adventures begin with the words “what if.” Like . . . “What if one of the grandkids got a hold of a Marks-A-Lot permanent marker and took it into the living room?” In between his adventures, he writes children’s books with his son Ryan, the illustrator. Floater is their first book, and Rick sees no reason why the trend should stop there, so long as he can keep wearing t-shirts.
During the day Ryan is a mild-mannered animator for Disney Interactive, but at night everything changes: he dons a cape and skintight suit and becomes a super-powered illustrator! He also has a wife and five kids . . . which technically makes him insane. Ryan’s goal is to make books that parents won’t mind reading to their kids and that kids will want to read over and over again.
