Paul DuFresne is a recently retired banker who also had a thirty year career in law enforcement.
Just before retirement he began to share some humorous poems and verse with his grandchildren who are scattered across the United States. As others began to read these early poems and stories the idea for a picture book to share them with a wider audience began to develop. He
now has another dozen stories drafted and is making progress toward additional books in print.
