Ted Macaluso writes tales of adventure, romance, and science fiction. With lots of art.
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 newest book, Seeking Cézanne: A Children’s Mystery Inspired by Paul Cézanne and Other Artists, features two siblings lost in a land of paintings and trying to get back to the real world. It is currently out for advance reader reviews. See the early reviews from Goodreads.com 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). His humorous fiction, Happy Ever After, appeared in Fabula Argentea: The Venue of Good Writing at this link.
Ted is currently working on Aegean, a young adult science fiction novel inspired by the paintings of nineteenth century romanticist, Ivan Aivazovksy.
