About Us




Our Mission

Our mission at Whimsy Creek Press is to produce books and other media that enhance the heart and nourish the soul. We hope to produce materials of excellence, products that educate, entertain, and enrich.

And yes, we realize that's a pretty high bar we're setting, but we like to reach for the stars.

We are especially interested in publishing. . .

Children's books

We believe that children's books can be enjoyed equally by small children listening to books read to them and by the grown-ups reading them aloud.

Curriculum

Learning must be first of all play. If it isn't fun, we probably won't learn much — at any age.

Fiction for All Ages

Stories are the life-blood of Whimsy Creek. From board books for babies to YA to women's or general fiction, we appreciate all kinds of wholesome fiction.

Church Drama

We love dramatic or comic pieces that make the audience laugh, or cry, or think—or preferably, all three. We hope to have sketches available for download and licensing soon.

Whimsy Creek is fueled by a collaboration between writer and reader, between storyteller and audience. Won't you join us on this grand adventure into the world of stories and possibilities?

Our Name

Whimsy Creek is a real creek. It flows down the hill where the publishing company is located.

It zig-zags back and forth across the road. On a summer day, it ambles along, taking in the sights, in no particular hurry to reach the river.

In a thunderstorm, it rushes and roars, sometimes threatening to overflow its banks and flood the street.

Whimsy Creek has magical properties, for it is also the stream of the imagination.

It burbles and giggles and flows around the wide world — through grasslands and jungles, through forests and caverns — cascading down steep cliffs in waterfalls, scattering rainbows.

It flows even in deserts and frozen wastes — because no matter where you are, you can always dream.

You can go anywhere or anywhen with your imagination.

Whimsy Creek is a small company, a pebble in the publishing pond.

But we have big dreams. And we're part of a big movement of indie publishers, a movement that is shaking things up on Planet Earth.

You don't have to live in New York City anymore to be a publisher. You can live off the beaten track — even on a country road by a creek.
