Meet Author Rick Bobrick

As a young parent, Rick Bobrick spent countless hours telling bedtime stories to his three children. Twenty-five years later, one of those stories has led to this first-time author’s unique picture book collection featuring Davy Crockett and his furry frenemy, the grizzly bear.

Rick is now retired and lives in Medusa, New York with his wife Cathleen and his big dog Bean. He enjoys fly fishing, skiing, gardening, and spending time with his grandson. After a forty-year teaching career (mostly middle school science), having his children’s books published is a dream come true.


Rick Bobrick

Rick spent most of his 40-year teaching career at the Hudson JHS which of course is the home of the Hudson Children’s Book Festival!

He is an avid home gardener and an amateur poultry farmer raising and caring for laying hens, meat chickens, and Heritage Bronze turkeys.

Rick was very fortunate to have a niece talented enough to illustrate his book series; it became a family collaboration that has exceeded both their wildest expectations.
