But some of us may need some help dealing with our inner cranky. This is where Steven Joseph comes in. Steven is a brilliant attorney and an even incredible writer. After penning extensive legal briefs, he decided to dabble into writing non-fiction for children and adults. Steven confesses that he may not have answers to everything, but he can help with all things cranky. His secret weapons of choice to combat crankiness – his disarming sense of humor.

In his fun, lighthearted style Steven explained how the Dark Age almost marked the end of the Dinosaur era, but one cranky dinosaur slipped away. Thus introducing, TyrantoCrankaTsuris, our oldest ancestor in the award-winning kids’ non-fiction, “The Last Surviving Dinosaur: The TyrantoCrankaTsuris.” The children’s book’s positive response and repeat requests about parallel books for the adult readers, led to him writing his second book, “A Grownup Guide to Effective Crankiness: The CrankaTsuris Method.”
