In June of 2012, we were approached by Christopher and the team at Familius Publishing with a vision for how we might write a series of books based on our Dude to Dad transition.

Despite crazy schedules and a short writing timeline, it was Mrs. Dude that concluded this was simply an opportunity that we couldn't say no to. 

Dude to Dad’s First Nine Months was released in May of 2013 and quickly became a #1 Amazon Parenting Bestseller. It contains absolutely no expert advice or medical guidance.You can read about mucus plugs and colostrum elsewhere. What you will find is a candid, quick and often irreverent roadmap for making the most of your own personal transition from Dude to Dad.

Dude to Dad's Wisdom For Dad was released April of 2014. By accessing the social web and the power of the 75+ other dads, Wisdom For Dad cuts through the clutter to deliver brief, witty, snippets of wisdom every dad will appreciate.

I bought this book for my husband. When it came in the mail, I intended to read the first few pages to him, and we ended up reading the whole book together in one session.

When a dude is considering dad-dom, sometimes all he needs is the encouragement and wisdom of one who has recently crossed that hallowed threshold.
