THE STORY BEHIND THE BOOK

"My Papa Was a Wild One"
Author Angie Barness

"My Papa Was a Wild One" was written in honor of my Dad, Greg Barness, who passed away on Father's Day of 2019.  Navigating the loss of my Dad seemed impossible at times, especially when I faced the reality of my daughter (and any future children) growing up without their grandpa.  As I did my best to steer through grief, I found myself needing to tell my Dad's stories.  This book does just that!


"My Papa Was a Wild One" is an adventure picture-book, full of beautiful, hand-painted, watercolor illustrations.  The book is based on Greg Barness' true-life events, with the inclusion of the Barness grand-babies.  My hope is for children and families alike to be inspired to live wild, chase dreams, and find joy in everyday adventures. 

The best part of all - "My Papa Was a Wild One" fulfills a life-long dream of mine, AND, honors my Dad by hopefully fulfilling one of his.  My Dad was always a dreamer.  He also always worked his ass off to catch those dreams.  One dream he had, but never did quite catch, was to be able to giveaway $2,000,000.  

Proceeds from all book purchases will go directly towards a giveaway fund. 

We will give away a total of $2,000,000 in my Dad's name! 

It's a crazy, big dream... but, after all, my Papa WAS a wild one, and he taught me to LIVE WILD.  

I hope you'll join me on this journey.
