I've been a syndicated children's writer since 1991 (Universal Press Syndicate, Tell Me A Story), and a newspaper columnist since the mid-80s. I currently write a monthly column for The Mad As Hell Club, a new online magazine (, and I am producing a series of audiobook CDs of my archive of children's stories. The first volume, Tell Me A Story: Timeless Folktales, won a 2006 Parents' Choice Silver Honors Award. I teach writing in Los Angeles and in Cleveland, Ohio.
