Joel Brigham writes Sci-Fi fairy tales and YA contemporary fiction, all of which are meant to be uplifting, hopeful, and fun. For 18 years, he has taught high school English in Central Illinois, and he has his master’s degree in Teaching & Learning from Illinois State University. He writes freelance SEO blogs for small businesses and was a senior writer for HOOPSWORLD and Basketball Insiders for 12 years, covering events ranging from the NBA Finals to NBA All-Star Weekend.
He is represented by Tina P. Schwartz of The Purcell Agency, where he also serves as an intern, and he is a member of the Penguin Random House High School Advisory Board. He still collects Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, takes his best naps with a baseball game on in the background, and spends more time with his fantasy football teams than his (perfect and wholly understanding) wife would prefer.
