I find it very doubtful that Tecumseh would engage in a conversation with someone the likes of Mr. Smith, but just in case Mr. Smith decides to start playing rough, I am dropping by to warn Tecumseh that the weasel has been nosing around in our business.
“Ah, Mr. Smith,” Tecumseh snorts. “The man with a stone heart and a snake’s tongue. Yes, we have had the pleasure to meet.”
“So I have been informed,” I say. “What did the snake have to hiss about me and my dealings with the Bigfoot?”
“He asked me about you. Nothing was said about a Bigfoot.”
“I see. And what, may I ask, did he want to know about me?’
This month, FishEye Photography is shining the spotlight on Fairview’s own Richard & Mary Rensberry, owners of QuickTurtle Books. Both Richard & Mary are the authors & illustrators of over 35 books, including Richard’s series entitled “Conversations with Sasquatch”. Richard is currently working on his fourth book in the series.
Originally from the Alpena area, Richard’s interest in Sasquatch started as a young boy while fishing on the bank of the Thunder Bay River, where he spotted a Sasquatch down stream fishing as well. This sparked a life long interest in the elusive and world renowned creature. As Richard said, “You don’t find them, they find you”.
Mary’s background is in education with her teaching skills spanning pre K – high school. She’s taught at charter, public, private, homeschool and parochial school systems, earning her Master’s degree in Instructional Technology in 2005. Mary has recently finished co-authoring a book called “A Genius in Every Child”. Mary is also heavily involved in local volunteer groups that are oriented in community development.
The couple met in 2012 while at a social event that Mary’s son was attending. Her son, who knew Richard, told him that he simply had to meet his mom during her visit from Texas as the two shared similar interests and he thought they’d hit it off. With introductions made, the beginning of a beautiful partnership began to bloom.
The couple relocated back to Fairview in 2016 as they “fell in love” with the dynamics and spiritualness of the area. Richard attributes this to the previous Indian influence that existed as well as the current Amish contribution to the area. They feel the beauty and demeanor of the community suits them perfectly.
The Rensberry’s are a delightful couple with a host of fascinating stories and accomplishments too long to list here. They write, illustrate and publish custom books for charitable groups and local businesses.

Here our author meets with the Bigfoot Council of Elders and is shown and gifted copies of the Bigfoot Parchments by Rutheeus the young leader of the Council. The Parchments contain valuable lessons on the Sasquatch powers of mind-reading and how to warp space in order to appear and disappear at will. They also contain lessons on the basic natural laws of creation itself. With Parchments in hand, our author is assigned the daunting task of altering the downward spiral on which the human race is fully embarked. Conversations With Sasquatch may very well be man’s final chance to get it right.
Praise for Book 1 Conversations With Sasquatch, The Encounter
Richard Rensberry your superb writing is so visual. I feel as though I can see, hear, and taste what you are experiencing. Before I retired a few years ago, I worked in a PR office at a liberal arts college in Pennsylvania… that fact does not matter other than I recognize the marketing and writing value of what you do. Mostly, I just really enjoy your story telling about Bigfoot! Reading your bio explains your way with words and how they paint a literal picture. It seems so real and from the heart. Doesn’t every author want to hear that? L.M.G.
Did you know that there are millions of people that still believe the world is flat?
The world is by no means flat and as sure as the world goes around, Bigfoot is real. You have heard tales of their appearances, seen blurry photos, footprint casts and questionable videos. These beings are difficult to capture for human skeptics, but they are real.
There have been sightings stretching far back into history and all across our planet. Bigfoot spans cultures and nations with many names such as Bigfoot, Yeti, the Abominable Snowman, Shiha Tanka, Sasquatch and others.
No one is an expert. If there were experts we’d see these supernatural beings on TV being interviewed by Oprah or Anderson Cooper, neither who have spent a single day or night of their lives alone in a forest. Sasquatch do not and can not exist to these delusional humans roaming the concrete and asphalt of New York City.
