About the Author

Richard Marcus

Richard Marcus is an award-winning author who has written for TV, film, educational software, songs, books and pretty much everything except menus.

His credits include some of the best TV shows ever produced, including Sesame Street, The Tonight Show (with Johnny Carson), and Dinosaurs as well as some of the worst and several that you’d be amazed even had writers.

He is the author of a textbook on Edgar Allen Poe and has been published in The New York Times, Berkeley Poets Magazine, Gravida, Thrive, Writers Against The War Anthology, Soup Songs, among others.        

He is married, with three very swell kids and Jennifer, his wife, “who is so great that people think ‘Well, he can’t be that crazy’.”     

He is currently living in Portland, Oregon but wants desperately to move back to New York or “any place where they have decent pizza and the state bird isn’t a rain cloud.”     

His young adult novel “Never Trust A Nano Dipped In Chocolate” is to be published in 2012.  


It was 1959, and it was me, a Jewish kid in elementary school, against Gagliano, Stamingo and O’Mera. What chance did I have?
