Welcome to the website of writer, editor, photographer, and teacher Gene Hult.
My culture blog is called Citysqwirl.
Under my pseudonym J. E. Bright, I specialize in children's stories for all ages, and have had more than 125 novels, novelizations, novelty, and non-fiction books published for boys and girls.
My photography portfolio is available through Getty Images.
I'm the publisher of Brighten Press, a small company building books for children and adults.
I'm also available for author visits to your school, library, camp, club, or other organization.
My Citysqwirl Etsy shop is now live, selling framed polyptych (multi-panel) collages of my photographs of flowers, birds, butterflies, cityscapes, and other items.
My first book of poetry was Render. These vivid, imagistic poems of belief, love, and manifestation are meditations on shaping your own reality. Available in hardcover, paperback and Kindle editions from Brighten Press.
I edited You Can Hear the Ocean, an anthology of inspiring poems about the sea from famous writers and contemporary poets. It's a perfect beach house gift! Available in hardcover, paperback and Kindle editions from Brighten Press.
My most recent book of poetry is Catfish and After, available in paperback and Kindle editions from Brighten Press.
My tutoring services can be hired at Varsity Tutors.
My editing, copy editing, and proofreading services can be requested at Reedsy.
