Creative Writing Teacher

Marc is the author of 80+ books for young readers—nonfiction and fiction, drama and humor. His titles include Bill the Boy Wonder: The Secret Co-Creator of Batman (which changed history, inspiring the Hulu documentary Batman & Bill, as well as a TED Talk), Thirty Minutes Over Oregon: A Japanese Pilot’s World War II Story, and The Chupacabra Ate the Candelabra.

He has done assemblies and workshops for kids in 30+ states and almost 20 countries, from Peru to Vietnam, and has two kids of his own. He’s had a blast working with young writers every summer at Landon since 2015 and Georgetown Day since 2020.

Fun fact: Marc’s first published writing was a poem about his mom that ran in his small hometown newspaper when he was 9 years old.
