Visionary storyteller and animal activist, Erik Daniel Shein blends his talent for children’s and young adult writing with a passion for CGI animation and animal health and well-being. He got his start first as a trained herpetologist, studying reptiles and amphibians, before turning his gaze to the art of written and visual storytelling.
As one might imagine, he is deeply passionate about animals, often featuring them in his stories and content, and he weds this passion with his philanthropic pursuits as a fierce advocate for animal rights. He has authored and co-written more than 30 novels and feature films, including the animated fantasy adventure tale, The Legend of The Secret Pass (Lions Gate Entertainment, 2019).
In addition to his writing, Erik is the founder and CEO of Shein Partnership LLC, a creative asset and intellectual property firm, with projects ranging from Live Action and CGI animated feature films, to television specials and series, and book publishing. A revered leader in the entertainment and publishing domains and a man of many talents, Erik is also a talented producer and voice actor.
