I've been publishing fiction since 2012, starting with a little eBook titled 8: The Previously Untold Story of the Previously Unknown 8th Dwarf. That story, which features a dwarf nicknamed “Creepy” by his seven roommates, is somewhat of a cult hit with readers and book bloggers. The positive reception inspired me to write two more twisted fairytales and publish the trilogy as my first book: TaleSpins.
Since then, Creepy the 8th dwarf has gotten his own graphic novel adaption titled 8: The Untold Story. I've also written two novels: the middle-grade superhero adventure Rocketboy: The Return of Dr. Megaton and Simon a modern-day retelling of Hamlet for young adult readers. Simon won the Bronze Medal for YA at the 2015 Moonbeam Book Awards. In addition, I'm also co-author of 11 titles in the award-winning picture book series Larry Gets Lost, created by my friend and former Disney colleague John Skewes. That work is highlighted here.
I live in Pasadena, CA with my wife Dani and our super awesome dog Finn. Our twins, Sophie and Max (pictured here in kindergarten) recently went off to college, a life event I find sad, surreal and amazing all at the same time. Even though I've been in California since 1996, all my sports allegiances remain in my native New England. Lastly, I'm a full-on geek about 3 things: Hamlet, The Batman, and the Miracle on Ice. (If you're under the age of 40, don't even get me started on that last one.)
My coolest family legend by far is that my father, Dr. Robert Mullin
(in the shades above) was the navy doctor who gave John Glenn his
post-orbital checkup aboard the U.S.S. Noa on February 20, 1962.
