Worlds Best PopPop? Meet William Stevenson

William “PopPop” Stevenson, Ed. D.
: The Rockstar of Kiddo Lit!

Ladies, gents, and tiny fans with crayons in hand, meet William Stevenson: a former award-winning accountant turned children’s book superstar.

Once elbow-deep in spreadsheets, now he dives into epic time-travel escapades, all inspired by the mischievous glint in his celeb-sidekick grandson. They’ve salsa-danced in Ancient Egypt, jet-packed through Greece, and turned Rome upside down, all before bedtime!

Their hottest release? “Ricky’s Triple-Whammy Dream Trip to Egypt, Greece, & Rome” – a tale that screams Hollywood adaptation. With shades perpetually perched atop his head, and a following that rivals A-listers, William Stevenson is not just telling stories; he’s making history. Catch him at the next red carpet – just follow the trail of glittering picture books and swooning toddler-fans!

Q. Who is your biggest writing inspiration?

Ayn Rand has affected my life more than any other author.  Two of her influential books are THE FOUNTAINHEAD AND ATLAS SHRUGGED.

Q. Give us the scoop about your book.

The stories are based on actual history written on a foundation of love.

Q. Can you tell us three fun facts about you?

– I am responsible for changing how taxpayers pay their income taxes.  The payee was changed from the Internal Revenue Service to the United States Treasury.  I felt Americans would feel more patriotic by sending checks to the United States Treasury.

 – I was on the planning and implementation teams of two new community colleges: one in New Jersey and the other in New York.

Q. If your book was turned into a film/TV show, who would you tap to play the lead(s)? Why?

For the role of PopPop, I would select Tom Hanks who is known for both his comedic and dramatic roles.  He is very talented and highly respected.

Q. What is the core message you want to deliver to the world through your writing/books/stories?

Life should be lived on a foundation of love, respect, and honesty.

The result of the love between a grandfather and grandson is very compelling.
