Hi, my name is Dr. Bill.

I've been writing children's stories for quite some time for my nieces and nephews. When Piranha Yama's story popped into my mind, I felt strongly that Yama's journey and it's messages would resonate in a bigger way and for more than just my family. I wanted to share it with everyone who loves colorful, fun, creative, uplifting, inspiring, adventurous, feel good stories.

I enjoy telling stories that sprout up from the unique way my brain processes words, showing new dimensions of meaning while the subconscious enjoys the layers beneath. In this case, it’s appeared as a story about a yoga-loving Piranha on a terrific journey.

As someone who is strongly empathetic, I feel or connect to others emotions by default, which is why I love doing things that help keep kids happy. And, in reality, we are all still kids with some years and layers of life experience built on top of us. With the positive messages that lace this story line, the happy “feel good now” side of us is reminded to shine bright and make the world a happier place. 

 

 



ILLUSTRATOR

Marco Bucci recognized two things at a young age. The first was that he wanted to become a professional artist. The second was that he couldn't draw. This delayed him for quite some time. He filled that time pursuing other artistic interests such as music and writing, but the urge to draw never left him. 

At age 19 he began to study classical drawing, which led him to kindle a love for painting and illustration. He hasn't looked back since. 

Marco's experience includes books, film, animation, and advertising. His clients include: Walt Disney Publishing Worldwide, LEGO, LucasArts, Mattel Toys, Fisher-Price, Hasbro, Nelvana, GURU Studio, C.O.R.E. Digital Pictures, Yowza! Animation Inc., Pipeline Studios, and more.

Marco is also a passionate teacher, and currently teaches "The Art Of Color & Light" at CG Master Academy, running four semesters per year.

Marco is represented by Shannon Associates LLC.
