I'm one of the PaperRats (along with R.J. Keller) of the writers' YouTube comic relief series "Inside the Writers' Studio," (take a look! www.youtube.com/user/paperrats) and author of Pretty Much True..., to release Sept. 4, 2012. I've been a grocery bagger, a reporter, a cab driver, an adjunct professor, and a writing instructor, and am currently a feature writer at a CT daily newspaper. I've also edited and co-edited American Fiction, this year's volume (12) judged by Josip Novakovich.
It's fun and challenging to excuse the inexcusable.
Favorite authors: Steinbeck, Hemingway, Parker, Atwood, Irving, Chopin, Novakovich, and Oates (different reasons for each).
Thanks Kristen! I appreciate you reading "Hanging By A Moment", as well as your comments (and yea, I think if the Dad could find a few simple words to share with his son, he could move beyond the angst that's ripping him apart).
Hope all's well with you!
Just wanted to say happy holidays and thanks for being one of my favorite experiences of this entire year! Here's to so much more in 2011!
Thanks for your great comments on "How Sturdy Is Your Sick Bag?" I'm looking forward to reading more of your work--it's amazing!
Key Kristen, I like the reason that you write. That DOES make writing fun (and challenging).
Thanks for encouraging me to keep my story going. I think there is more to it, too.
