Richard and Kathy Verlander

Richard and Kathy Verlander are retired and live in rural Goochland, VA.  They have two grown children and share an abiding love for kids, dogs, baseball, and all things outdoors. The Verlanders are also the adoptive parents of three dogs who qualify as family.


 This is their second book. The first, Rocks Across the Pond chronicles their fascinating journey raising MLB super star Justin Verlander and his younger brother Ben.


Richard and Kathy currently serve as volunteer campaign co-chairs with Goochland Pet Lovers, a non-profit group that is raising funds to help with the construction of a new animal shelter in their hometown.


They volunteer at the shelter and love walking the dogs.
