About the Author
"I always liked to make up stories, especially lying in bed at night before I fell asleep.
"It was not until I was twenty that I actually took up ceative writing. One of my favorite parts of the process was imagining myself in various characters' shoes, even if those characters - dragons for example - didn't wear shoes at all. A year later, in 1975, I graduated from Hamilton College andbegan a six-month internship at the New York Times Book Review.
"Since then I have been a full-time writer for children. I married my wife, Joan, in 1984,and we settled in my hometown of Lexington, Massachusetts, where we live with our two sons, Andrew and Peter.
"When I feel like I've spent enough time hunched over my computer, I like to play soccer and softball, and read books written by other people."
