Just over a year ago, Oswego High School alumnus wrote and illustrated a children’s book called My Dad Has a Beard.
The book is about a baby celebrating how great it is to have a bearded dad, and it’s a fun book for bearded and non-bearded alike.
Since then, he’s sold over 1000 copies! “I never expected it’d be so popular. I just wanted to make something funny to share with my own son.” Roggenbuck said. This book is Kellen’s first. In the past year it’s been sold in 43 states, Canada, and the UK. In addition, it’s been featured in blogs like Readers’ Favorite, WeAreTeachers.com and Beards.org. “It seems to sell the best around Father’s Day and Christmas. I guess it makes a great gift!” he shared, “I’m glad people like it. It’s a favorite around my house.” Roggenbuck’s book is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
