"Quirky" is the nice word my friends use to describe me, mostly because I'm more like a literary character than a typical person. Larger than life, I enjoy writing books that expand kids' horizons through relatable heroes, travel, history, different cultures, and action adventure.

Background Information

I wanted to be a writer since I was thirteen, when I read Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger. I put the book down, I looked up, and I said, "I want to be able to talk to a reader the way J.D. Salinger just spoke to me."

I've written fourteen novels, two stage plays, three movie scripts, and a dozen short stories, often instead of working paying jobs like people tell me I'm supposed to do.

While I was working in China, I became fascinated with the Terra-Cotta Soldiers. I turned that fascination into Escape of the Terra-Cotta Soldiers, Book One in the Ethan Sparks Adventures series for kids ages 9-13 and up, which was published in 2008.

My love for Greek mythology has help me create my latest  -- Revenge of Poseidon's Trident -- which was published in February 2010.

I live in the foothills of North Carolina with my wife, Jenn and our two dachsunds, Natalie and Carson, who have agreed to be our children.

Birth Place
Boston, MA US
Additional Information

Revenge of Poseidon's Trident was published in February 2010!
