Grant Snider began drawing and writing before he knew what he was doing. Soon it was too late to stop. His work has appeared in The New York Times Book Review, The Kansas City Star, The Best American Comics 2013, and all across the internet.
His books include picture books for children, comic collections for adults/young adults (The Art of Living: Reflections on Mindfulness and the Overexamination of Life, April, 2022), and often focus on mindfulness. His latest, One Boy Watching, about a young boys experience riding the bus to school, was published in June 2022. For 11 years, Grant rode Bus Number Four in Mulvane, Kansas. His favorite things about riding the bus were listening to ’90s Top 40 radio, the feeling of going over a big bump on a country dirt road, and occasionally getting to school late when the bus had to wait for a long train to pass.
Grant lives in Wichita, Kansas with his wife, daughter, and four sons. He has a day job as an orthodontist, but is always finding hidden hours to write, draw, and create cartoons and picture books You can often find him carrying a sketchbook, lost in his own thoughts.
