Lemony Snicket Biography

Birthdate: February 28, 1970
Birthplace: San Francisco, California

Lemony Snicket has crept into the souls of millions of children around the world with his Series of Unfortunate Events. The latest and last book of the series was released on Friday, October 13, 2006 and culminated one of the most depressing stories in history. Read on to find out more about the man behind the name.

Lemony Snicket - AKA Daniel Handler

Lemony Snicket is the name that author Daniel Handler took on to write his Series of Unfortunate Events. Daniel often appears at press junkets as Lemony Snicket's handler or as Lemony Snicket himself, so it gets kind of confusing where Daniel's personality ends and Lemony's begins...

Lemony Snicket - Struggle to the Top

Before Daniel took on his Lemony Snicket pseudonym he was writing books under his given name. You might think that someone as talented as Lemony Snicket would never have trouble getting his work published, but before the Series of Unfortunate Events came along, Daniel Handler's first novel was rejected 37 times by publishers! Many thought that his material was "too dark" for teens.

Lemony Snicket - A Series of Unfortunate Events

Back in 1999, a tale too frightening was unleashed on the world. The Bad Beginning was the first of thirteen books published in the Series of Unfortunate events, with The End being released on Friday the 13th. For those of you who have yet to have the displeasure of reading these books, the series centers around three orphans, Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire, who are dealt tragedy after tragedy. Despite their miserable existence, the orphans keep on trucking to The End. The first three books, (The Bad Beginning, The Reptile Room and The Wide Window) were made into a feature film in December 2004.

You want to take up a responsibility at the age of 12. That is good...proves that you are really mature for your age. Good luck!  You should try out what you would like to do as a profession, it will help you to understand how it will be in the future. You should try them out...!

I'm 11 at the moment. Turning twelve at the end of May. I really want to try out babysitting or petsitting. I've helped out in the preschool area of my old school, and sometimes help the little girl across the street when I'm playing with her older siblings. I'm also very mature for my age.   ​With the petsitting thing, I've been around lots of different types of animals. From a lizard to a horse. I also want to be  a veterinarian when I'm older so I think it will be a good thing for me to do. ​P.S. I plan on taking a Red Cross babysitting course.
