He then went to Kenyon College first to study English, then moved out to Los Angeles to go to film school at the University of Southern California.
His first novel was a non-fiction book about Sherlock Holmes, called 'The Sherlock Holmes Handbook', published in 2009. His additional novels include 'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children', 'Talking Pictures' and 'Strange Geographies'.
