About the Author

 

Patrick-Hueller-Stu-authorAlong with being a writer, Patrick Hueller is short. If you’ve read Stu Stories, you know that Patrick’s shortness is one of the reasons his friend Stuart Sanderson calls him “Bird Bones.”  There are a couple fun facts about Patrick. For instance, he has an identical twin brother, Andy Hueller. Andy’s a writer too. He’s short too. Believe it or not, Patrick’s wife also has an identical twin. Patrick’s wife is also a writer. Patrick’s not sure whether she considers herself (and her twin sister) to be short. That’s pretty much all the fun facts about Patrick. He’s pretty boring. That’s why he doesn’t write about himself. Instead, he writes about Stu. Stu has an endless list of fun facts. For starters, he’s not short. Not at all. In fact, he’s the least short person Patrick has ever known. And the least boring.

Professional bio:

Patrick Hueller has an MFA from the University of Minnesota. Through various pen names, he has written several YA and MG novels. Foul, a sports-horror story written under the name Paul Hoblin, was described by Booklist as “the strongest entry yet in the Night Fall collection” and “unbearably tense.” The Beast (also as Paul Hoblin) was a School Library Journal selection. His most recent titles include Wolf High and The Wish (as P.W. Hueller), both of which made SLJ’s list of “Accessible Reads for Struggling Reluctant Readers.” His work is included in several anthologies, including Fright Before Christmas and Love and Profanity: A Collection of True, Tortured, Wild, Hilarious, Concise and Intense Tales of Teenage Life.

Mr. Hueller is a writing instructor at Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota. Check out more of his and Stu’s thoughts on Twitter (@callmebirdbones).
