As the Cleveland Plain Dealer put it in April 2009, "Ted Schwarz may be the most prolific author you've never heard of." He's been freelancing full time for nearly forty years. During that time, he's written well over one hundred books and more than three thousand articles and short stories for publications throughout the world. His books have been translated into more than a half dozen languages, and several have been made into documentaries and/or television movies. He has appeared on over three hundred television and radio programs in the United States and Canada, ranging from Larry King Live to Dee Perry's Around Noon for Cleveland's WCPN, the local NPR station.
