Josh Gottsegen is a creative force to be reckoned with, as evidenced by the success of his Tropland Universe media franchise and the Joosh’s Juice Bar children’s book series. A passionate advocate for healthy lifestyle choices, Gottsegen infuses his colorful and imaginative stories with positive messages about food and nutrition, encouraging children and adults alike to make healthy choices.

Gottsegen’s journey to becoming a successful children’s author and media creator is rooted in his love of writing and storytelling. He began writing as a child and has always been drawn to the power of words to transport readers to different worlds and inspire their imaginations. This love of writing and storytelling led him to create the Tropland Universe franchise, a rich and diverse world filled with colorful characters and exciting adventures.

At the heart of the Tropland Universe franchise is the Joosh’s Juice Bar series, which follows the adventures of Joosh and his family as they navigate the ups and downs of running a healthy juice stand in the heart of Tropland Forest. Through his stories, Gottsegen promotes healthy eating habits and encourages children to make positive choices regarding food and nutrition. He also explores the culture of food, introducing readers to a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, and other healthy foods in a fun and engaging way.

As the Tropland Universe franchise has grown and evolved, Gottsegen has continued to push the boundaries of traditional storytelling. His first novel, ‘The Adventures of Rockford T. Honeypot’ was published in 2020 by OneLight Publishing and was quickly received by hundreds of bloggers rating the book 5 stars on Amazon. More recently, one of the most exciting new developments in the franchise is the incorporation of AI art, which allows Gottsegen to create new characters and concepts in a whole new way. Using midjourney and photoshop, he is able to generate unique character designs, settings and storylines that would be extremely difficult using traditional methods. This innovative approach has led to the introduction of exciting new characters like King Mak, Princess Penelope, and Queen Kona from Gottsegen’s upcoming novel, “The Myth of the Pear Princess”, adding depth and richness to the already vibrant Tropland Forest.

In addition to promoting healthy lifestyle choices, Gottsegen is also committed to promoting diversity and inclusivity in his stories. The diverse cast of characters in the Tropland Universe franchise reflects the diversity of the real world, helping to teach children about acceptance and understanding. From Zebra rockstars to magical superheroes, and a menagerie of quirky animals and creatures, the Universe of Tropland Forest is a celebration of diversity and imagination.

Overall, Josh Gottsegen is a true creative visionary, constantly pushing the boundaries of traditional storytelling and inspiring children to make positive choices when it comes to food and nutrition. Through the Tropland Universe media franchise and the Joosh’s Juice Bar book series, he has created a magical and imaginative world that captures the hearts and minds of readers of all ages. With the incorporation of AI art and other innovative techniques, the future of the Tropland Universe looks brighter than ever, and we can’t wait to see what Josh Gottsegen comes up with next.
