About the Author and Illustrator

Joseph Settecasi, Author

Joseph Settecasi had a life-long ambition of writing children’s books which was realized after being inspired by the birth of his grandson, Ford.  This inspiration led to his first children’s book, Ford Goes Looking for the Sun (2017).
 
A former Middle and High School science teacher of Biology, Earth Science, and Marine Biology, Joe believes strongly in the “oneness” of the Universe.  He cleverly incorporates this concept into his writing for young readers so they can better understand “about us and how we fit into the world around us.”
 
Joe and his wife were long-time residents of Tampa where he owned and operated Bay Balloons, Inc.  In 2015, they ventured off to the Atlanta area to be closer to their two daughters and grandchildren.  Please stay tuned for Joe’s next book which is inspired by his curious granddaughter, James!
