 Bruce Hale Biography

Raised by wolves just outside Los Angeles, Bruce Hale began his career as a writer while living in Tokyo, and continued it when he moved to Hawaii in 1983. Before entering the world of children's books, he worked as a magazine editor, surveyor, corporate lackey, gardener, actor and deejay.

From picture books to novels and graphic novels, Bruce has written and illustrated 30 books for kids. His "Chet Gecko Mysteries" series includes: "The Chameleon Wore Chartreuse," "The Big Nap," "The Malted Falcon," "Hiss Me Deadly, among others. His "School For S.P.I.E.S." series includes "Playing With Fire" and "Thicker Than Water."

You could say Bruce has a thing for lizards. He also has created five Hawaii children's books, including Legend of the Laughing Gecko," "Moki and the Magic Surfboard" and "Moki the Gecko's Best Christmas Ever" -- all starring Moki the Gecko. (By the way, Moki the Gecko and Chet are second cousins.)

When not writing and illustrating, Bruce loves to perform. He has appeared on stage, on television, and in an independent movie called "The Ride," where he plays a surfer's agent. Bruce is a popular speaker and storyteller for audiences of all ages. In 1998, he won a Fulbright Grant to teach storytelling and study folklore in Thailand. (No, he doesn't speak much Thai, but he loves Thai food.)

He has taught writing workshops at colleges and universities, and he has spoken at national conferences of writing, publishing and literacy organizations. On top of that, Bruce has visited elementary schools across the country, from Hawaii, to Kansas, to Pennsylvania. (You’d never guess he loves to travel.)

These days, Bruce lives in Santa Barbara with his wife, Janette, and his Heinz-57 mutt, Riley. When he's not at the computer or drawing board, you'll find him hiking the hills, bicycling, or riding the waves (when it's warm enough, that is). He also likes going to movies and playing jazz music.
