Read information about the authorShevi Arnold writes funny. She can't help it. She's been writing funny since she was a kid, cracking up her class and her teachers with her humorous essays.
In high school she studied sitcoms when she was supposed to be doing her homework, and in college she took a couple of courses in comedy and clowning, as part of her degrees in English Literate and Theater Studies. She just had to find out what made something funny.
Eventually she cracked the code, and that led to jobs as a political cartoonist, a comic-strip magazine editor, and an arts-and-entertainment writer specializing in children's entertainment and, of course, comedy.
But a funny thing happened that put an end to her career as a journalist: she ran into a dead end where her autistic son's education was concerned, so she and her husband decided to leave the city where they had lived to move the family to New Jersey.
A few months later, Shevi asked her husband what she should do.
"What have you always wanted to do?" He asked.
She thought about it for a while. "I've always wanted to write funny stories, fantasy and science fiction for kids and teens."
And so she did. Dan Quixote: Boy of Nuevo Jersey is the first she's published, and more are on the way.
