Author Info

When Nick Mantis was a teenager, his family moved from an industrial city to a farmland community in Northwest Indiana. The change in environments made an impact on Nick by making him more aware of the relationship between people and nature. This awareness led Nick to pursue Environmental Studies that provided a wide range of environmental opportunities. Nick graduated from Indiana University's School of Public and Environmental Affairs. His first job was working at an Environmental Law Firm exposing Nick to the legal world between industry, government and its citizens. Nick also taught the first Environmental Awareness classes at U.S. Steel, one of the largest and oldest Steel Mills in the world. Nick then went on to produce videos for his local Waste Management Agency and The Indiana Dunes Learning Center.Nick's background and his desire to be involved in the environmental field, motivated Nick to reach out to an audience eager to learn about environmental issues. So Nick created "Waterville" a Children's Book series that takes the young reader through the day to day environmental adventures of a group of charismatic animals living in and around Waterville, a natural pond they call home.Nick is married, has two children, owns and operates a Video & Media Production Company serving the Northwest Indiana and greater Chicagoland market.
