Some of his titles include, DON'T LOOK NOW, IF YOU LIVED HERE YOU'D BE HOME BY NOW and I AM (NOT) THE WALRUS,  He is the illustrator and co-creator of the Publisher's Weekly comic strip, 'The Slush Pile.'  Ed teaches illustration and creative writing in southern New Jersey and spends his summers in Portland.  The Green Light reader series, PETAL AND POPPY is his latest endeavor and first collaboration with his wife, Lisa Jahn Clough.
