Meet Joe Fisher and Jaye Boswell

Rusty the Forgotten Fire Engine tells the story of a fire engine and the fireman and boy who love him.  It is a lighthearted and multi-layered story, richly told, that will appeal to adults and children alike.

Whimsical illustrations create an air of fantasy, drawing children into Rusty's world while stimulating their imaginations as they follow Rusty's journey from hero to outcast and back again.

The surprise ending brings the tale to a heart-warming and satisfying conclusion that reveals all things have hidden value that is waiting to be released.  Rusty the Forgotten Fire Engine is a classic story of love, loss, transformation, and redemption.


Joe Fisher is the father of two children and is passionate about the importance of loved ones reading to young children on a frequent basis.  Rusty the Forgotten Fire Engine is his first children's book and is the written version of a story he created and told his children when they were young.

Jaye Boswell was an award winning art teacher for twenty-two years in the Lee County School System.  One of her class projects grew into the nationally acclaimed Junior Duck Stamp competition.  Although retired from teaching Jaye remains active as an artist creating work that reflects her love of art, the environment, and children.
