Happy Holidays! Hey, speaking of holidays, guess what? I wrote a Hanukkah story for Yoto’s 5-Minute Holiday Stories collection, which is out NOW!

But wait, there’s more…

I have also written two Christmas-themed children’s books, both of which came out earlier this year. The first one is The Gremlins Little Golden Book, which was illustrated by Meg Dunn. It’s out now from Penguin Random House. As you may have guessed, The Gremlins LGB is an adaptation of the classic 1984 film Gremlins.



And the second one is The Nightmare Before Christmas Paper Models Book, which is out now from Thunder Bay Press. This book is filled with behind-the-scenes anecdotes and trivia about the making of the classic 1993 movie The Nightmare Before Christmas.
