My first picture book is out! It's called Poesy the Monster Slayer and it's an epic tale of bedtime-refusal, toy-hacking and monster-hunting, illustrated by Matt Rockefeller. It's the monster book I dreamt of reading to my own daughter.

I bought Attack Surface while listening to Cory talk about it (& many other things) on

Cory speaks about how people thrive under less-than-perfect circumstances, something his stories are so excellent at illustrating. It's truly a wonderful gift that so few authors have and something that the world needs more of. Cory's stories are brave, inspiring and so topical, dealing with real world issues in an unflinching, optimistic way.
