I started out as a ceramic artist, working in clay, doing narrative pieces that told a story. I was quite successful in a small way, showing my work in different cities, teaching, running the art gallery at Whittier College and eventually becoming an assistant professor of art and, for one year, the chair of the department. Then one day I had a life changing revelation: It's easier to tell stories with words. Wow! No more mud; just a computer and Word. No more lugging hundreds of pounds of clay around and staying up until dawn watching the kilns. Since then I have been a struggling would-be author, a successful T.V. writer/producer (co-created That's So Raven for Disney) and finally the author of The Little Russian.
