About the Author
I was born in Natick, Massachusetts, in 1982. I grew up as a simple, lucky, athletic, experimental, rebellious Huck Finn type character who went to school, went mad and graduated early (believe it!). I left Natick on a northbound train for Portland, Maine, at eighteen, lived in a fancy farmhouse, moved to Cobblestone City, wrote poems and drank the drink of many drunks. I came home to simple suburbs, met wonder-muse and balled that jack all the way to Cape Cod, rucksack on back, wrote book, bought home, slaved in sad kitchens, dribbled scotch, ate fish, sat at beach, bought two dogs, married J.L.W., made good friends, wrote Short-Shorts and today I am happy as a pig in poo!
