Thal Dixon

This award winning author and poet just might be the Dr. Seuss of this generation. He has won the Utah Best of State Award for both Children's Books and Poetry on multiple occasions. His ability to weave an interesting tale through perfect rhyme and rhythm makes his stories extremely entertaining for kids. He is also a great speaker and entertainer in front of an audience of kids or adults.

He is a proud father of five children and resides in Sandy, Utah with his wife Claudia. He loves football, basketball, hiking, playing frisbee with his Border Collie named Moki, and watching movies. He is available for speaking engagements and loves to share his words in front of a live audience.

By sharing his stories and their messages with young minds, he entertains, lifts and inspires.  He works hard to get kids excited about reading and learning.  His hope is to also create a few future authors along the way.
