Dr. Fro, as his students love to call him, is a public middle school teacher and college professor in Southeastern Pennsylvania working primarily with the special education population. Fred is a proud husband to Julie and father to three amazing children Leah, Freddie, and Danielle.
It is out of the love for his children that Dr. Fro's stories have come. While spending quality time reading to his children at night time, what became evident was that the Froehlich children were all going to be amazing readers. The passion for reading at bedtime made it a challenge to find new books which would lead to the creation of the title character Frobble. Improvising stories to entertain his children about the miscreant behaviors of a pesky child, Frobble, the Froehlich children would start to request "Frobble Stories" instead of traditional books at night.
After attempting to craft a method for helping his students to increase reading and writing proficiency, Dr. Fro came up with the idea to have his students write books. They would write a minimum of 30 pages and eventually publish them through a digital self-publishing software. The idea was initially met with resistance but when Mr. Fro agreed to take on the task as well, it would allow many students to show incredible growth and buy in during class time.
The challenge to produce the book for his students resulted in the motivation for the Frobble Series. The experience has helped Fred to identify a new passion for writing stories to inspire children based on values such as loyalty, honor, respect, friendship, and healthy social and emotional bonds.
