Timothy J. Cooney is the author of the book Telling Right From Wrong.[1] Cooney was not able to get his first two books published, so in an attempt to legitimize his third book, he submitted a falsified letter to Random House. They ultimately reversed their plan to publish the book after learning of the true origins of the letter.[2] Telling Right From Wrong was later published by Prometheus Books.
