The site is published and edited by James Zahn, aka "The Rock Father."
"My name is James Zahn, better-known online as The Rock Father. I started this site in 2011 as an outlet not only for my personal stories, but as an extension of everything that I've ever done in the past... but with a family-friendly spin. There's a lot of Blogs and Family Entertainment websites out there, but honestly, there just weren't any that I felt were speaking to me. So I started my own Magazine, and left my position as editor of another site to focus on The Rock Father exclusively.
As of 2015, I'm a work-at-home Dad with two beautiful daughters and a loving wife that supports our crazy adventures. My family is my #1 Gig, with this site a close #2. I still work in the entertainment industry on occasion, but any of those gigs are just a bonus. I appreciate your time in checking out the site, and hope you'll continue to do so early and often!" -- James Zahn
