Welcome to my website!

Hi there!

The Skwerdlock



The Skwerdlock is always fun to be with and is always curious and excited to try new things. The Skwerdlock watches everything you do and then likes to try it all. Because of that, the Skwerdlock is a great friend to have around.

The Skwerdlock would never do anything to hurt anyone or to cause any problems. But sometimes, just being a Skwerdlock means that strange things can happen when a Skwerdlock is nearby. This little story is a friendly reminder of what can happen when a Skwerdlock is around.

But, mostly, the Skwerdlock is just an excuse to curl up in the recliner or sofa with your favorite early reader or listener and smile together.

And, if the illustrations seem a bit “amateurish”, that’s something Pops and the Skwerdlock have done intentionally. They both love really nice illustrations, but they also want to remind your young storytellers they don’t have to be “perfect” to create a really good story.

Just remember, “Never Take A Skwerdlock to the Doctor!”

Meet the Skwerdlock

If you are looking for a book that…is serious, teaches important things, talks about boring stuff…

This is not the book you want!

Pops doesn’t write that kind of book.

But if you want a book that…is sometimes just silly, is fun to read, is fun to read over and over and over again…

Then…Meet the Skwerdlock!

“I Saw the Skwerdlock!”

A story for young readers and listeners…

As “Pops”, John shares the stories he told his daughter years ago, and now tells his grandchildren today. Stories of fun and wonder, sometimes crazy, but always with a smile.

“I Saw the Skwerdlock” is the second Skwerdlock story created to help spark a love of books, help learn a few words, and just have an excuse to sit in the recliner and enjoy time together.
