Steve Petzinger wrote Bob the Banana Goes Bad for a writing project in the sixth grade. He never thought anything else of it, but his mother kept the book safe and intact. Today, Steve enjoys playing music and running as his personal hobbies. He studied music and computers at James Madison University, graduated with a B.S. in Computer Science in 2003 and began a career as a software developer.
Throughout the years, his parents urged him to publish the book. In 2020, with the help of a friend, he finally decided to do it. He enjoyed the process of writing and publishing so much that he's looking forward to continuing a Bob the Banana series. "I just want to write something funny and entertaining but that also instills values in children."
Steve sought help and expertise from his close friend, Selai Akbar-Hussain, who has been teaching preschool for eight years. She has read hundreds of children’s books and is knowledgeable about children’s books content. After months of hard work, both their dreams of publishing a children’s book came true.
