He has worked as a journalist for The Boston Globe and once wrote the words for Ben & Jerry’s ice cream containers, a job that involved getting paid to eat ice cream. He started writing for young people with a science fiction novel for the Choose Your Own Adventure series. He found he loved writing for young adults, and he’s been doing it ever since.
