THIS BLOG HAS BEEN RETIRED. I'm still going to be keeping it up here, though-- there's some pretty cool old stuff on it. That said, if you want to keep up to date with me, please go to

I've been a bad boy about updating this blog lately but that will be changing. Just got my first copies of Olympians Book 5, Poseidon: Earth Shaker and am very happy with them. I'll be sharing a lot of sketches and background material from this and the upcoming Aphrodite (if you squint you can make it out on the back cover there).

I came here to lobby for more Olympians titles, and I see Poseidon! I can't wait to read more, and neither can my 7-year-old daughter, who is just discovering and loving Greek mythology. Imagine her grandmother's pleasure, for she taught Latin.

We devoured Hades in a single sitting. By the way, did you know they file this stuff in nonfiction? Who knew?

Keep up the great work. Kids need this information.

Can't wait for your next 2 books! Our whole family can't get enough of your books--from my 5 and 7 year old son and daughter to my husband and I. We love your artwork and storytelling. You really have a way of making the gods and titans look magnificent.
