Lincoln Peirce

Lincoln Peirce (pronounced "purse") is a cartoonist/writer and New York Times bestselling author of the hilarious Big Nate book series (bignatebooks.com), now published in twenty-five countries worldwide and available as ebooks, audiobooks, and as an app, Big Nate: Comix by U! He is also the creator of the comic strip Big Nate, which appears in more than three hundred U.S. newspapers and online daily at www.gocomics.com/bignate. Lincoln's Big Nate books include five novels, three activity books, and several comic strip compilations. Lincoln's boyhood idol was Charles Schulz of Peanuts fame, but his main inspiration for Big Nate has always been his own experience as a sixth grader. Just like Nate, Lincoln loves comics, ice hockey, and cheez doodles (and dislikes cats, figure skating, and egg salad). His Big Nate books have been featured on Good Morning America and in the Boston Globe, the Los Angeles Times, USA Today, and the Washington Post. Lincoln has also written for Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. Lincoln lives with his wife and two children in Portland, Maine.
