I am a writer in the Berkshires in Western Massachusetts. I am the former arts and entertainment editor at the North Adams Transcript, and my work has appeared in a number of publications including the Boston Globe, Berkshire Magazine, Berkshire Eagle, Take Magazine, Hill Country Observer, Publishers Weekly, The Comics Journal, Salem Evening News, Worcester Magazine, and others. I am currently a weekly columnist for the Berkshire Eagle and a reviewer at The Comics Beat, and a regular contributor to the History Channel's History.com.

I am also a children’s book author, with a number of titles to my name, including the notorious A Rule Is To Break: A Child’s Guide To Anarchy and Happy Punks 123, the world’s first punk rock picture book. My children’s picture book biography of Frank Sinatra, Frankie Liked To Sing, was published by Abrams Books for his 100th birthday, and with a Sinatra family endorsement. My most recent books were Gorilla Gardener and We Say No! A Child's Guide To Resistance.
