Stephen Spivey, Children's Author and Documentary Filmmaker

An award-winning documentary filmmaker, author, baseball card collector, dad and husband.

Stephen Spivey grew up up in Algiers, Louisiana, and Peachtree Corners, Georgia. Living in the South gave him a deep sense of wonder, where he learned to traipse through the woods in full exploration mode, always in hopes of grand discovery (think pirate treasure). These adventures, coupled with his mom's insistence that he read whenever he had a moment of pause, gave him a vivid imagination. Stephen's vivid imagination, while getting him in all sorts of entertaining predicaments as a child, gave him a springboard that has allowed him to be in the business of storytelling

The most important thing the author wants readers to gain from his book:

With busy schedules, quality family time is hard to come by, and time, especially to kids, equals love. Snuggle, Sniggle, and Sometimes Snickle brings children to the place they love the most — snuggling with the people they care for most. When our snuggle book is read ... smiles occur!

Why the author is an authority on the subject of his book:

In our household, all sorts of imaginative hoo-ha takes place daily. As Mary Poppins said, "Anything can happen if you let it." Well, we let it, and our family snuggle adventures and expertise are now on paper. See how we have taken the snuggle game to the next level, and for free I'll throw in my southern drawl.
