Eric Luper grew up in northern New Jersey and attended Rutgers University. He had a number of interesting jobs including: paperboy, worker at a rehabilitation center for birds of prey, worker in a factory that made those foil things that go around potted plants, and restoration worker on a medieval castle in southern France. Nowadays, in addition to being a children’s writer, he’s also a chiropractor, and is proud to have moved from starving artist to not-so-starving artist. He is the author of two Scholastic Book Series Key Hunters and The Chocolate Lab, and writes for the Amazing World of Gumball, The Regular Show and Teen Titans Go! on Cartoon Network. He has also written titles for Scooby-Doo, Star Trek, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
