About the Author
Kermit Jones, Jr. stumbled across the idea of a prepper book for kids when trying to decide how to explain the topic to his four young daughters. Having attended high school in a very rural part of Virginia, he later went on to graduate from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD. After spending a few years as a Surface Warfare Officer, he resigned his commission and entered the Navy Chaplain Corps, earning his Masters degree at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, TX. A Reservist, he was recently recalled to Active Duty.
In addition to writing children’s books, he is an instructs on topics of personal and emergency preparedness, and has been a guest on several radio and talkshow broadcasts. His gun safety book, “Prepper Pete’s Gun of a Son,” has taken the number one spot on Kindle for the “Children’s non-fiction” category. Between kids and his career, he has learned that it is important to “be prepared!”
