“The Writer”

Devin‘s first children’s books were written in crayon on his parents’ computer paper, stapled together and sold for one dollar to all his family. As he grew up in Georgia, those stories evolved into a collection of poetry and songs. In addition to being the cofounder and co-author of Crown the Kid Books, he has built a career in finance. He lives with his wife Erica, two boys, a boxer pup and a tortoise. He enjoys vinyl records, stand up comedy, Hey Arnold and Taco Tuesdays
