About this author

I grew up in Great Neck, NY loving all things fantasy and science fiction - from Dungeons and Dragons and the Legend of Zelda to Star Wars and Dr. Strange. I created and imagined new worlds and stories from an early age but never knew that I had the talent to be a writer until seventh grade, when my English teacher assigned our class to write the first ten pages of a sequel to The Good Earth. After that, I was hooked.

I now live in Los Angeles with my wife, two children and a black and white alley cat with a bite out of his ear. I write with a partner, Andrew Jacobson, who is a much better typist than I will ever be.

With the release of The Familiars: Circle of Heroes this past Tuesday, we have been circling the blogosphere talking all things heroes. Here's where we've been so far!

“Gilbert tried to reason with the smoke hound. “I am a frog,” he explained. “You are a puff of black smoke shaped like a dog. We are not related.”
Adam Jay Epstein, The Familiars #2: Secrets of the Crown

“Well, if your body begins to expand rapidly, stay away from any sharp objects,” Skylar replied.”
Adam Jay Epstein, The Familiars #4: Palace of Dreams

“Just then Gilbert let out a sudden belch, and a burst of fire shot from his mouth. It nearly singed the feathers off Skylar’s body.”
