Former Coast Guard Officer Pens Series on Flatulence

Posted: Updated:
Virginia author, Rodney Evans has publish a debut series of children’s books designed to entertain, educate and enlighten children and adults. Rodney says, “The Flatulent Pumpkin started as a dinner time story. We were sitting around the table talking and I created a joke which made the family laugh.”

I never imagined becoming an author. I’ve spent my professional career writing reports, briefs, memos and emails. However, my family insisted I write this story because a flatulent pumpkin caused a giggle fest in our home, and the children wanted me to share it. So, I followed the command and wrote this funny story about a magical flatulent pumpkin.”

Unlike most stories with flatulence, Evans didn’t write anything crude, offensive or disgusting. “After all, we all know that one trick pony. When I tell stories, I used the opportunity as a teaching moment.”

Rodney Evans was born September 11, 1966 in Gulfport, MS. He enlisted in the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve in 1987 and earned a B.S. in Finance from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). Rodney later was commissioned as a reserve officer in 1995. However, 9/11 changed his professional direction and Rodney went from civilian professional to full time solider instantly.

Rodney now pursues writing. He is the author of The Flatulent Pumpkin Series, a humorous ‘How To’ Collection for young readers on building their courage and solving their problems. As a former military officer, Rodney knew the importance of resolving problems efficiently. Because of the intensity of his positions, Rodney wanted teach his children about character, courage, discipline and the warrior within. So, he used his storytelling skills at dinnertime to teach life choices with humor and laughter.

Evans is a strong advocate for reading and children’s issues. Rodney completed 11 years of active duty service. He currently resides in Winchester, VA with his wonderful wife, children and dog, Buddy.

Lorraine Carey, another author of children’ books says, “If you would like to see children laughing out of control, you’d better grab your copy of Tales of the Flatulent Pumpkin. As a children’s reading specialist and educator I can tell you this is `kid humor’ at its finest! This story is a great read to for parents and teachers of children ages five on up to ten. Trust me on this one, children will want to read this one over and over again.”

The Series is now available on Amazon. Read more here:
