About the Author
Joshua Kriesberg lives in Seattle, Washington with his wife and two sons. His sons were willing listeners to countless "make-up" stories, which eventually formed the novel Horatio's One Wish. Kriesberg has written for most of his life. He has an affinity for animal characters in fiction. "Although I wrote the book for children," says Kriesberg, "the story's characters and universal themes can appeal to all ages. The story is really about how a lost and lone creature, Horatio, ventures out into an unknown world and overcomes great odds to find his way home. A journey all of us can relate to."
