Long-time Lucasfilm executive editor/author of nonfiction/fiction books for adults and children, many genres and media. I love good stories.
Nonfiction/fiction editor of books on Lucasfilm, Industrial Light & Magic, Lucasfilm Animation,
and LucasArts ( The Cinema of George Lucas, Rogue Leaders: The Story of LucasArts, ILM: The Art of Innovation, and many others). Worked closely with George Lucas on his chosen books, from Star Wars Frames to Star Wars Art: Visions. Worked closely with a number of publishers on a variety of publications and formats: Del Rey, Scholastic, Chronicle Books, becker&mayer!, Dark Horse Comics, Abrams Books, Dorling Kindersley, Titan Books, et al. Edited and created stories for dozens of middle-grade and YA Star Wars fictional books. Was key in creating the LEGO-Star Wars merger in books and a line of high-end deluxe limited editions. Worked closely with in-house and freelance designers.
