Rodo spent the first few years of his life in a small village called Rijeka Crnojevica, in Montenegro (formerly a part of Yugoslavia). The next few years he lived in Salzburg, Austria. His family then immigrated to the United States. Maybe it's this diversity of cultures and languages that inspire Rodo to read, write and have fun with words, epecailly telling stories. He has worked with young children for over 45 years, as a teacher, translator and mentore. In addition, he has raised four of his own, and now grows with his grandkids. Currently, Rodo lives in a larger village, Phoenix, Arizona, with his loving wife, Susan, and some of the kids--who all constantly help him with his English.
