David Hyde Costello attended the Hartford Academy of Performing Arts, where he studied acting, and then went on to major in theater and visual arts at Bard College. After graduating, David worked on the sets of plays and movies, including Hello, Dolly! on Broadway and the films Angels in America, Spider-Man and The Departed. He also painted, created puppets for theater productions, and spent a year living in Indonesia.
David now lives in Amherst, Massachusetts, where he writes children’s stories, songs, and plays; goes hiking and cross-country skiing; and continues to fill reams of paper with the characters and images that populate his imagination. Here They Come! is his first children’s book. Artwork from his latest books are featured below.
