Grant Goodman grew up in Maryland, watching tons of cartoons, playing tons of video games, collecting tons of Pokemon, and reading tons of manga.

He went to college at the University of Maryland, where he continued to watch tons of cartoons, play tons of video games, collect tons of Pokemon, and read tons of manga.

Then he became an adult with a job, but he still found a way to watch more cartoons, play more video games, collect more Pokemon, and read more manga.

Somewhere along the way, he decided to have some fun writing a novel that felt like a cartoon...or a video game...or a volume of manga. That led to the creation of the Agent Darcy & Ninja Steve series.

He is happy that you're here, reading this.
