Hank Frazee, Sharon Gibb Murdoch

Hank Frazee grew up in Southern California and graduated from UCLA, with a major in English Literature. An entrepreneur, he entered the life insurance business and advanced to the top one percent of insurance agents in the world. His love of family and books, as well as a desire to share his method of storytelling with other parents, and grandparents, led him to write Before We Say Goodnight. On the origin of the book, he says, I got the idea for writing the book from my own experience as a father. When my son, John, was around two, my wife read to him at bedtime and then I came in and sat with him until he fell asleep. After a while he began to ask for a bedtime story. At first I told the standard fairy tales but quickly ran out of material doing that. Children especially love two things: The first is stories, and the second is hearing about their parents lives. Hank Frazee has wrapped both loves in one beautiful method and book. It should sweep the nation! ~ Dan Sullivan, Founder of The Strategic Coach, Inc. Then I thought to ask him if he wanted a real or a fake bedtime story. He asked what the difference was and I said, A real story is about something that actually happened and a fake story isn t. He said he wanted a real story, and I told him about something or other that I had done as a kid. He loved it and from then on, when he would ask me for a story, I would tell him about my life experiences and, after a while added stories about my family. I didn t set out to do that. All I was trying to do was to think of a story to tell that night. I gradually realized that I could draw on a virtually endless supply of stories from my own memory. In the past decade, Hank has told literally thousands of bedtime stories to his three children about his life and family experiences, and the process has brought him closer to his children. Mr. Frazee wrote the book so that readers can confidently tell entertaining bedtime stories to their children about their life and family experiences and have a lot of fun doing so. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and three children and several pets, including a dog named Winston.
