He attended Black River High School and later attended Ohio University, where he graduated with a degree in Management Information Systems. Hughes would later attend Columbia University's School of the Arts while in his late twenties, graduating with a MFA degree in Creative Writing.
On November 12, 2010 it was reported by news sources that Hughes would no longer be ghosting the Lorien Legacies series after The Power of Six, citing a dispute over the direction the series was going in. There was also rumored discontent over the initial contract with Full Fathom Five, with the Wall Street Journal reporting that Hughes had renegotiated his initial contract, which had required strict confidentiality over his identity as one the series' ghost writers and would penalize Hughes if he violated those terms. Hughes had completed work on The Power of Six and had reportedly been working on a draft for a third book in the series, with Hughes' draft copy being thrown out and any further work for the series being said to be completed by Greg Boose, another ghost writer.
