His first book, Vincent, Theo and the Fox, is an adventure story about Vincent van Gogh and growing up (picture book/early reader for ages 4-10). Kirkus Reviews called it “…a charming, unique way to introduce youngsters to great art while providing an important message.” The Washington Post wrote “…the colorful paintings jump off the pages and will give you a lot to think about….it’s cool. Very cool.” Read more about Vincent, Theo and the Fox here.
Ted’s short story, The Recall, was a winner in The Washington City Paper’s 2018 Fiction Contest. Read the winning stories here (The Recall is the fourth).
Ted is currently working on Seeking Cézanne, a chapter book that uses an adventure story to support the Core Standards for the Visual Arts, and Aegean, a young adult science fiction novel inspired by the paintings of nineteenth century romanticist, Ivan Aivazovksy.
