A Yucky and Magical New Year!

Happy New Year, everybody!

It's been awhile since I've updated, and I have a ton of news to share.

Yucky Science
2016 was a very exciting year, especially with the release of the Things That Make You Go Yuck books I co-authored with my buddy Charlie Hatton.  In December, we learned that all four books made the National Science Teachers Association's NSTA Recommends list, the Mystifying Mutants book received a great review from Seattle Book Review, Crooked Critters had a nice review in Book Reporter, and a science-loving kid really loved our Lego joke in Extreme Living.

In fall 2017, we will be releasing a new science book with the same publisher. Details coming soon! 

Magicland
Our webseries Magicland got into 18 festivals, and we still have submissions out there. Production of Season 2 begins early in 2017 with an expected release of Fall 2017. More news will be posted on the Magicland site and our production company's website Drinkstorm Studios.

Stageplays
Charlie and I had a chance to travel in 2016 to see some of our stage plays produced. In August, we went to beautiful Halifax, Nova Scotia to see our fairytale comedy, The Marriedest One of All,  and we went twice to NYC to see Johnny Culver and his team perform our spooky script Edward's Closet!  In May, we'll be heading to Rochester, NY to see Everyone's Theater Company perform our script Odd Scouts Out!

That's it for me! Hope you all have a happy, healthy, and fruitful 2017.
