Steve Sheinkin

Steve Sheinkin has written short stories, screenplays and worked on a comic called "The Adventures of Rabbi Harvey." In 2006, after literally hundreds of rejections, his first Rabbi Harvey graphic novel was finally published. He wrote chapters for history textbooks while working on his own projects in his time off. In 2008, he wrote his last textbook. His first non-textbook history book was "King George: What Was His Problem?" full of all the stories about the American Revolution that he was never allowed to put into textbooks.

These days, he lives with his wife, Rachel, and their two young kids in Saratoga Springs, New York. They’re right down the road from the Saratoga National Historical Park, the site of Benedict Arnold’s greatest–and-last victory in an American uniform. His newest books are "Mixed Up History: Abraham Lincoln, Pro Wrestler" and "Mixed Up History: Abigail Adams, Pirate of the Caribbean."
