About Bob Shepherd

When I was 4 or 5 years old, my mother purchased several Golden Books for me, one of which was entitled "The Little Engine that Could." In the tale, a long train must be pulled over a high mountain, Larger and stronger engines are asked to pull the train, but for various reasons they refuse. The request is sent to a small engine, who agrees to try. The little engine succeeds in pulling the train over the mountain while repeating over and over again it motto: "I think I can, I think I can!" That little Golden Book about how a little blue engine overcomes a seemingly impossible task became one of my most treasured possessions. I suspect, in some small subconscious way, that was the beginning of my penchant for writing. I'm retired now, but my entire working career involved writing and editing in some form or another. As a technical writer, nonfiction writer, managing editor, and publications manager over a span of thirty years, my wife and I decided I should continue my writing in retirement as a children's book writer. But specifically in the nonfiction genre, like "My Little Square Book of Steam Locomotives," so kids learn about the some interesting facts as opposed to pure fiction.
