I got hooked on writing in the fifth grade because the teacher let me skip class. It's a long story, but short on adventure so I'll skip to the interesting bits.
I am the long time author of How Not to Write, a blog about the Art of Writing without Writing. I'm the author of several novels and many short stories. I often try to write for adults but my work tends to shift ever so subtly towards stories geared towards children without talking down to children.
In the end, I'm just a big kid and so that's the kind of stuff I write.
