Personal Quote:

When I write, I try to think back to what I was afraid of or what was scary to me, and try to put those feelings into books. See more »

Trivia:

Was the head writer for Nickelodeon's top-rated children's show "Eureeka's Castle." In fact, when his son Matty was little, he would fall down a lot and quickly get up and instantly say, "I meant to do that!" This inspired the character of Batly, whose gimmick was whenever he would fly, he would fall down and do the same. Always with: "I meant to do that!" See more »

Trademark:

Known for his horror novels.

Star Sign:
