Paul Baribault – The author’s first children’s story was a Christmas musical, The Little Red Cap, produced by L.L. Bean in 1997 when he wrote for that company’s iconic catalog. Following this stage adventure another, a dramatic-comedy – God Touches – was produced at a Performing Arts Center in Maine, in 2009. Two years later the inspiration for Sleepyheads - Telling Dreams arrived, with the birth of a second grandson. Before and since a number of plays, poems, children's books and screenplays were composed, labors of love, as all writing has been since an early age with encouragement by several influential teachers. It is the author’s intent that Sleepyheads online story books may ignite this same affinity in a new generation of students, supporting our hope:
That inspiring a child to love writing is as easy as... telling dreams --
with a child's own dreams the rich place of beginning.
An Inspirational Book About Parallel Dimensions,
Time, Grace, Faith & Other Realities --
and Our Beautiful Destiny.
