Oscar Hinklevitch is an interesting name, and not the real name of the author. The author’s real name is John Brooks. He decided to use this pseudonym as a tribute to his paternal grandfather, who always responded with that when asked for his name, and is also one of his heroes. John was born in Southeast Georgia and relocated to Alaska in 2010. He is a parent volunteer with an American Heritage Girls troop and also with Trail Life USA. Those organizations fulfill his love for working with children, while not having to suffer the rigors that a real teacher struggles through. He has incredible respect and admiration for teachers and what they put up with for our children. His hope and prayer is that this book, along with any future novels, will help provide his family the ability to eventually adopt a child...or two...or three. He has long had this desire, but there are real world hurdles to overcome first. Children are expensive! His fervent hope is that you enjoy the stories he brings forth and they help unleash your imagination. That is what reading a novel is all about, after all.
