One-Line Bio

I'm the writer of the Uncivil War series of books. I used to edit Detective Comics, the flagship title of DC Comics, as well as Batman: Black & White, Green Arrow, Nightwing, and The Batman Adventures. I later went on to write The Gotham Adventures, and helped create not one, but two new Batgirls. I've also written children's books, animation, music reviews and novels. I live down San Diego way with my magnificent wife, children's author Melissa Wiley, and most of our six children. (One escaped, the little rat.) I write about music at Reason to Believe and about my work at The Other Scott Peterson.
