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.), Marvel (The Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man, Avengers), LEGO, Barbie, Clifford, Tonka, DreamWorks (Shrek, Madagascar, How to Train Your Dragon, Kung Fu Panda, etc.), Ice Age, Marmaduke, G.I. JOE, Scooby-Doo, Care Bears, Digimon, Bella Sara, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Power Rangers, and Sweet Valley High, among others.
I'm the publisher of Brighten Press
, a small company building humor, guidance, fiction, and poetry books for children and adults.
For more than 20 years, I worked in children's publishing houses as an editor at HarperCollins, senior editor at Scholastic, and executive editor at Simon & Schuster, as well as managing editor on the literary magazine Denver Quarterly.
