Ted Macaluso is a children’s book author. He was born in Brooklyn, New York. His father was a scientist; his mother an artist. He has been a college professor and a successful research writer and editor for scientific studies of child nutrition and hunger. But he always loved storytelling and art. He now writes books for kids that make art more exciting.
His first children’s book, Vincent, Theo and the Fox, is a story about Vincent van Gogh and growing up. Kirkus Reviews called it “…a charming, unique way to introduce youngsters to great art while providing an important message.” The Washington Post said “…the colorful paintings jump off the pages and will give you a lot to think about…Macaluso wants to share the beauty of the art world with all kids. And even if they don’t admit it right away, it’s cool. Very cool.”
Ted earned his Ph.D. at The Johns Hopkins University. In his first career, he specialized in persuasive writing, providing research designs and win themes for numorous study proposals. If you want to see some of the child nutrition research studies in which Ted was involved click here.
Ted now concentrates full time on creative writing. He studied at The Writer’s Center in Bethesda, Maryland, taking courses on writing for children, writing science fiction and fantasy (which he also loves), plot development and much more. Ted is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and Americans for the Arts.
Ted lives in Reston, Virginia with his lovely wife, kind-hearted dog, and frequently temperamental word processor. His son is now in college. You can read his blog on art, children’s books and more at www.tedmacaluso.com.
