John Fusco lives in Morrisville.  But he's known in Hollywood as the screenwriter and producer of Western and Native American themed movies like Young Guns, Hidalgo, and Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron.  In recent years he's drawn inspiration from his knowledge and love of martial arts, writing the screenplay for The Forbidden Kingdom with Jackie Chan and Jet Li. 

That interest in martial arts drew him to a new project for a very different audience.  He's written a picture book for very young readers, called "Little Monk and the Mantis: A Bug, A Boy, and the Birth of a Kung Fu Legend."
