Billy Steers began using his artistic talents as a child, creating pictorial diaries of his daily experiences. He furthered his endeavors in college, majoring in Geography with an emphasis in Cartography at the University of Utah. At that time he also was a regular cartoonist for the student newspaper. In April 1999, Billy introduced the first children’s book that he wrote and illustrated, Tractor Mac Arrives at the Farm. Originally published by Golden Books, Tractor Mac Arrives at the Farm tells the story of Sibley the work horse who feels slighted when a “shiny new tractor comes and takes over his chores.” Sibley and Mac overcome their differences and become “the best of friends.” The Tractor Mac stories are inspired by Billy’s love of antique machinery, farm life and by his experiences growing up on a small hobby farm in Connecticut.
Billy has continued on with several more enthralling and likeable Tractor Mac children’s books for boys and girls in the series. Children love the bright, detailed illustrations and absorbing stories, which have become “bedtime favorites.” Subsequent stories include Tractor Mac Learns to Fly followed by Tractor Mac You’re a Winner, Tractor Mac Builds a Barn, Tractor Mac Harvest Time, Tractor Mac Saves Christmas, Tractor Mac Parade’s Best, Tractor Mac Farmer’s Market, Tractor Mac Tune Up, Tractor Mac Family Reunion and Tractor Mac New Friend.
