David Lubar


David Lubar was born and raised in Morristown, New Jersey. His mother was a school librarian so he spent lots of time at the school library.

After going to college at Rutgers, where he got a degree in Philosophy (and played guitar in a bluegrass band), he tried writing for a living. Two years, nearly 100 rejections, and not many earnings later, he took a job designing and programming video games. Lubar worked on games like Home Alone, Fantastic Voyage, Carmen Sandiego, Frogger 2 and Super Breakout, before deciding in 1994 to return to writing.

This time around he was more successful with his writing. He sold six books in 1995, and with some brief interludes for video game work, he’s been writing ever since. He enjoys the opportunity to create whole worlds that are as weird or magical as he wants, and someday, he’d like to write a movie or cartoon show.

Lubar is married and has one daughter. He — and his cats — live in Pennsylvania. If you get a chance, see his presentation at a school or author visit — he’s a riot and kids love him.
