Patrick "Packy" Mader is an elementary teacher and children's picture book author. He is one of seven children raised on a small farm in Minnesota. Packy attended college in Bismarck, North Dakota, and then graduated from St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wisconsin. Work experience includes working as a farmhand for neighbors, as a material handler for Tonka Toys, teaching adults, being a customer service representative, and currently teaching intermediate grades at a public rural school in Minnesota. He is the author of two books, Opa and Oma (German for Grandpa and Grandma) Together and Oma Finds a Miracle. A third book is expected to be launched in late 2008, Big Brother Has Wheels. His intergenerational books have positive messages and have a rural setting. Packy has presented at several state school and public library conferences and enjoys going to schools, libraries, historical societies, and civic organizations to share his stories.
Big Brother Has Wheels! is tentatively scheduled to be launched in late fall of 2009.
