Author Bio
James Howe
James Howe's career as a writer began in grade school when he wrote and edited a newsletter, "The Gory Gazette," for his classmates and friends. Although he loved writing, Howe's original career goal was to be an actor. After graduating from Boston University, he moved to New York City with his wife, Deborah, to pursue acting jobs. The couple began writing the book BUNNICULA in 1977, not realizing that Howe was beginning a new career as a children's writer. Since Deborah Howe's death in 1978, James Howe has written several sequels to their original work, as well as picture books, novels, and nonfiction.


San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
"This knockout novel, easy to read and hard to put down, poignantly takes on potent issues: race, sexual orientation, love, loss, peer pressure and compassion." - Susan Faust 11/18/2001
