Born in Port Jefferson, NY in 1965, Pol wrote his first story at the ripe old age of ten! And he was hooked! In high school, Pol won several awards, including best actor for his portrayal of Jesus in Godspell. After high school, Pol pursued acting for a bit, but it was writing that had a hold of his heart. In 2000, Pol published his first book, Blue Moon. Since then he has written and published ten more books, including his first YA series, Serpenteens. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Pol also has a passion for wood burning, and has been inspired since moving to the mountains of Colorado with his husband and their golden retriever, Buster. © Pol McShane 2015
