Dave Strauss lives in Charlotte, North Carolina with his wife Deb and their children, Jacob, Josh, Hannah and Ilana. When Dave isn’t running new story ideas by his youngest daughter, he and his family enjoy time at the beach, hanging around with their labradoodles Cubby and Nala, and keeping an eye on all things Chicago sports.
My family is my why. Especially my children, and demonstrating to them that no matter your age, it’s never late to chase what you love. What excites me is speaking with kids and adults about dreams, creativity and chasing our passions. After a couple of years as a teacher, I switched to the ‘corporate world’, and many of my dreams were put on hold. With the support of my family, and bedtime story characters in hand, I embarked on this path and Spaghetti and Rugby Bugby were born. I am grateful you’re here, and hope you’ll enjoy their stories. I’m excited to be working on new adventures for both series, and to bring new characters to life soon.
