Christopher McLucas

Born 1987 Omaha, NE (USA)

The author has written short stories, novellas and a children's book. In an interview after the publication of his children's book The Giggle Farm, McLucas explained how he chose to play off the idea of a coloring book to get children to interact with the story and make it their own, “I want parents and children to be able to work on it together,” he said, “it changes the dynamic of family reading. It makes reading time a family activity.” As a child he loved the way Norman Rockwell could fit a whole story into a painting, and he wanted this book "to be like that and to be an ode to Norman Rockwell. I wanted New Age Americana.” The book was funded via Kickstarter by his circle of friends at Legend Comics and Coffee in Omaha.

We appreciate corrections and additions to our information about authors, but please read the following guidelines and caveats carefully.

  • The Nebraska Authors database is based on publicly available sources. Unless you are the author contacting us in person, it helps us if you cite the source or sources of your information. We cannot include unsourced information in the database.
  • We may be appreciative of information we choose not to include in the publicly available database.
  • To include an image on an author profile, please send jpg attachment to nebraskaauthors@lincolnlibraries.org. A photo-release agreement is required before the image will be published on this site.
  • Because of the way we are staffed, expect corrections or additions to take time, sometimes up to three months.
  • While we initially included some actual links to external URLs in the database, we will in the future no longer provide functioning links. We will instead record the presence of specific external materials in language that we hope will help intelligent users find it themselves. Web rot, in which actual materials remain online but undergo changes in their URLs, is too demanding in terms of staff time for us to hope to keep external links current.
