I am the author of NINJAS, PIRANHAS, AND GALILEO(Little, Brown & CO. Children's Books 2003), a romantic science comedy courtroom drama. My second novel, TOFU and T.REX(Little, Brown 2005) is scheduled for release in July 2005. It tells the story of a girl who is a vegan who goes to live with her cousin's family, who own a German delicatessen and butcher shop.
I'm married to author Cynthia Leitich Smith who, among other things, maintains an enormous children's literature resource site. She's also a blogger.
