Dear Reader:

Over the past ten years of my career, I have worked on The Modern Faerie Tale books, The Spiderwick Chronicles, and The Good Neighbors, three series dealing with faeries and folklore.  But the dozen stories that make up my first collection, THE POISON EATERS AND OTHER STORIES, gave me a chance to write about lots of the other things I'm interested in.

Contained within THE POISON EATERS are stories of a vampire girl named Matilda who stops herself from drinking blood by drinking booze; of Elienad, a werewolf boy who is kept like a dog by his father; of Nikki, a girl living in a trailer park, who challenges the devil to a competitive eating contest; as well as one story set in the Modern Faerie Tale world, where Roiben walks into a coffee shop and is drawn into a past he thought he'd long left behind.  They were so much fun to write and I hope they are equally fun to read.
