From 1994 to 1996 he worked as a senior producer and writer on the SonicNet website. The first edition of his non-fiction book, Masters of Doom, was published in 2003.

In 2012, his narrative non-fiction book Jacked: The Outlaw Story of Grand Theft Auto was published. Jacked provided an inside look at the inner-workings of the video game company Rockstar Games, makers of the controversial Grand Theft Auto series, and attorney Jack Thompson's attempt to destroy it. The book served as the basis for a film on the BBC, Game Changer.

Kushner's 2016 autobiography, Alligator Candy, describes the abduction and murder of his preteen brother, Jonathan Kushner.
