Thanks to a pair of bookish, artistically inclined parents and older siblings, Jarrett* discovered the wonders and delights of reading, writing, and drawing at an early age. He hasn’t stopped doing them ever since. His first-ever book project was a comic book about a family of ducks, titled “The Ducks.” Since then, Jarrett has authored EngiNerds and its sequel, Revenge of the EngiNerds, as well as the forthcoming Geeger the Robot series (all published by Simon & Schuster/Aladdin). His illustrated works will begin appearing in 2020.
He lives in Medford, Massachusetts, USA with his wife, his daughter, and a cat. He cofounded and helps run the MG Book Village, an online hub for all things Middle Grade, and is the co-organizer of the #KidsNeedBooks and #KidsNeedMentors projects. He can be found at jarrettlerner.com.
