Gene Hult
freelance children's book writer
Visit my LinkedIn site for my writing and editorial resume.



My name is Gene Hult, and I'm a full-time freelance writer with more than 110 books published.

I specialize in children's books for all ages, in formats including storybooks, easy readers, interactive apps, novelty books, coloring & activity books, novelizations, and middle-grade and young adult fiction and non-fiction.

While I love writing original stories, I've also written for many existing characters and licenses, including DC Comics (Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Catwoman, the Joker, Super Friends, Teen Titans, Justice League, etc.), LEGO, Barbie, Clifford, Tonka, DreamWorks (Shrek, Madagascar, How to Train Your Dragon, Kung Fu Panda, etc.), Ice Age, Marmaduke, The Incredible Hulk, G.I. JOE, Scooby-Doo, Care Bears, Power Rangers, and Sweet Valley High, among others.

I hope to hear from you soon to discuss potential writing projects.
