A True Story

I live in Pasadena, CA with my wonderful wife Dani and our super awesome dog Finn. Our twins, Sophie and Max (pictured here in kindergarten) are finishing up their college careers. I couldn’t be more proud and amazed. Even though I've been in California since 1996, all my sports allegiances remain in my native New England.


I've written marketing materials for the merch divisions of Disney, DreamWorks, 20th Century Fox, and Universal, but I gave all that up because I was tired of selling people junk that was just going to end up in a landfill. Before I was a writer, I was a preschool teacher and college professor, two positions I found disconcertingly similar.

My author career began with a twisted fairytale retelling about the 8th dwarf which turned into a trilogy of such tales. I'm currently working on a business plan for an 
educational company offering curriculum that teaches things like empathy and anti-bullying. 

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.
