G. I. Barrett, II, short story author, novelist, freelance writer and poet, is a native of North Carolina. He enjoys being a father and often considers himself the father of the year, every year. Being a dad has its perks. You get to shower your kids with love, food and the occasional evil eye. Every holiday enhances the relationship between a dad and his kids. Each month, Barrett will share parenting stories that focus on holidays from a dad’s perspective. When he’s not running down behind his daughter and son, or becoming a sturdy Stallion horse strong enough to carry two young and energetic cow-children on his back, he enjoys the family aspects of his community and incorporates his love for parenthood. Barrett has been featured in magazines and newspapers and believes painting the interesting parent picture with his “quill paintbrush” will help those who need reassurance that life is full of vibrant experiences.
