Q & A

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in suburban Hillsborough, NJ, about 30 miles outside New York City.

 

What is your earliest memory of writing/drawing?

I have been drawing as long as I can remember.  As a child and teen I illustrated hundreds of comic books and comic strips and wrote silly stories with my friends in our spare time.

 

What inspired you to write/illustrate your first book?

I have always wanted to reach out and share my ideas with children.

 

Do you use your childhood as inspiration?

I am a 32 year old 12-year-old.  I am a professional child! 

 

What are your hobbies and interests besides reading and books?

I enjoy traveling the far and dusty corners of the world, reading about design and architecture, and eating cookies.
