Stephen Emond has no super human powers. He has no summer homes in exotic locales, and has yet to win even one single solitary popularity contest. But he has a way with words and does alright with a pencil. He created the comic book series Emo Boy, collected in two volumes, and is the critically acclaimed author and illustrator of young adult novels HAPPYFACE, WINTER TOWN, and BRIGHT LIGHTS, DARK NIGHTS. He’s also dabbled in screenplays and game design and animation, notably the iOS platformer PENUMBEAR. He resides in Connecticut and probably still has his Christmas tree up.
