DORP EXPRESS DRAGON TRAIN BOOKS & ... / Bio

30TH YEAR DORP EXPRESS BEGAN WITH A STORY FROM A DREAM I HAD ABOUT A LITTLE DRAGON NAMED DORP THE SCOTTISH DRAGON. I WROTE A 9 BOOK SERIES. SEVERAL OTHER BOOKS AND SONGS CAME AFTER THAT. THE DORP EXPRESS PUPPET SHOW WAS BORN WITH MY 7 YEAR OLD SON HANK. I BUILT HIM A LITTLE PUPPET BOX. AND MADE PUPPETS BY HAND. SYBRINA DID THE SONGS AND WE WERE OFF TO THE LIBRARIES.THEN WE GOT BIGGER AND SO DID HANK. WE SOON HAD OTHER PUPPETEERS AND HE BECAME AN ACTOR COMEDIAN IN THE SHOW. FOR 20 YEARS. HIS SISTER ALSO WAS EDITOR OF THE BOOKS AND TRINA AND KENNY SANG IN THE SHOW. THEN VAN BUCHANAN CAME ALONG AND 67 MUSICAL PUPPET SHOWS A YEAR. WE HAD 3 SHOWS IN ONE DAY AND ONE 100 MILES FROM THE OTHER. WITH THE GRAND KIDS TOO.SADLY HANK WAS MURDERED IN HEARNE TEXAS IN 2008. JUST ABOUT KILLED US ALL. BUT DORP KEPT US UP AND IN THE AIR. WE LOVE YOU HANK. THANK YOU SON.WE SALUTE YOU.

VAN BUCHANAN CAME IN AS A VOCALIST TO THE SONGS. HE PUT THE MELODIES TO MUSIC. SOON ALBUMS,BOOKS,COLOR BOOKS,T-SHIRTS AND MANY OTHER ITEMS WERE BEING SOLD. AND THE POPULAR DORP EXPRESS PUPPET SHOW. WHERE THE HUNDREDS OF CHARACTERS WERE INTRODUCED FROM THE MANY BOOKS FOR CHILDREN. EACH SONG WAS PRODUCED AS THE CHARACTER CAME TO LIFE ON STAGE IN PERSONALITY AND SONG ABOUT THE CHARACTER.75 THEMES WERE INVENTED AND OFF DORP FLEW.
