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.

As it is now do you think it's ok to continue doing it?   I'm not sure how it is done right now, give me some time to read about it, not really a topic I've bothered about before. All you tend to hear is protests against how horrible it is, but people seem to be fine with it on a whole tbh >>hmm it's unpleasant but I think most of it is necessary. I would say it's acceptable at the moment but we should try to find alternatives, e.g. testing on lab-grown tissues. And only test on animals for the things that have no alternatives

When you truly love someone, no distance or amount of time can tear you apart. Sure it would be easier to move on, but being with anyone else would just be settling. The days are lonely and the nights are worse but when you have a love this strong never let it go. It may be hard, but God knows it'll be worth in the end. It's my favorite quote because I'm dating a soldier. I live in the state and town we met in but we've been together for four months and he's away at bootcamp right now but I love him. And this quote truly speaks about what we're going through.
