Author Biography

The book Reggie is something he’s kicked around in his spare time for a very long time.  In fact, every story in this book has been drawn before, and told, over, and over again with the family for decades.  The stories never get old.  His wife suggested, “instead of just drawing and doodling in your art book, why not package it up in the form of a book for others to see and enjoy?” Why not, he says. Reggie’s only regret is not launching the story book soon enough, before one of his favorite, and funniest brother passed away in 2018. He believes, Russell would have truly enjoyed seeing this very much, because Russell was his biggest fan.

Reginald P. Howard (Reggie) is a self-proclaimed freelance illustrator who has been drawing for the love of art for over 40 years. Born in Amarillo, Texas in 1963, Reginald is the fifth of six siblings. This fun bunch is the offspring of Nona and Olin Howard who still reside in Beavercreek, Ohio today.   Aside from a few drawing classes in high school, Reggie’s drawing stems from being self-taught and self-refined. Today, he draws with much more purpose and meaning with the publishing of this book, and as an illustrator for a series of children’s books that his wife has authored recently.

Have you had a fight with your sibling? Have you ridden a bicycle fast downhill and lost control? Have you been forced to play with your younger sister when you would rather be playing with your friends? Reginald P. Howard takes these events, adds a splash of colorful and quirky illustrations, and presents them as a neat book. Reggie: That's His Story is a quick and simple read. As I read each story from Reggie’s life, I smiled a lot with a nostalgic feeling. Even though I live in a different country and culture, the emotions captured in each story were thoroughly relatable. I might not have played the same games and been to the same places, but the feelings were the same. I highly recommend reading Reggie for a trip down memory lane.
