The Authors

Landen Sanders is a busy five-year-old. He created the character Duckie Goosie when he was three years old after a friend gave the family a big helium balloon for the arrival of his baby brother. Landen named it Duckie Goosie and started making up stories about him. Duckie Goosie Fixes His Sled is Landen's second book. For both, Landen shared stories with his father Lance, who helps write them. Landen is also a busy model and actor and has appeared in national and local print and TV ads, catalogues, and product packages.

Lance Sanders is a father of two, husband, food scientist and patent attorney. He started his career as a home economist in the test kitchens of a major food company and enjoys cooking and writing. Helping Landen write his stories and reading them to his little brother is a real joy. Each story teaches children how to do something and weaves in a life lesson. The family lives in Edina, Minnesota.
