About The Author

Joe Cundiff grew up in Four Seasons Country nestled within the heart of the Appalachian Mountains.  An area rich in history, steeped with tradition and graced with an endless splendor and beauty that proved to be natural canvas for a writer and pen, though he did not know it until much later in life.  While roaming the mountains of Southwest Virginia and Southern West Virginia a passion for the outdoors was born and has been shared with lifelong friends, and has led to countless adventures in many States and Canada.  Journeys that have provided great fodder for stories and tales.

Being a father of two intelligent, beautiful, energetic and creative daughters has also inspired many works and opened Joe’s eyes to a whole new world of ideas.  Having read a countless number of bedtime stories set the stage for when a friend ask him to write a children’s book, and a new journey began.  “I could have never found the place where those stories were born without Jordyn & Jayde.” he says in the dedication of the first book.

Inspiration is something we all long for and Joe has found much from his daughters, but credits his wonderful family and friends just as well.  “I try to paint pictures with words.” he says.  Those pictures come from life and a life lived.  Put simply, “without all the great people in my life there would be no stories to tell, no words to paint with.”
