  • About Me

    Lately I'm obsessed with audio. I play around in Fl Studio, clean it up in Audacity then put the music to video at Canva and splatter spaghetti all over YouTube's walls. Signed copies of my latest book, Clown Gravy, are available.

    Why do you write?

    These spastic babies in my brain are dying to be born.

    Any favorite authors? Books?

    R.G. Vliet. Joe Pachinko. Kathy Acker. William T. Vollmann. Gertrude Stein. Denis Johnson. Jack Spicer. Richard Brautigan. Lester Bangs.

    Misti, Thanks for your kind words on Outside Starbucks... Funny story about your Las Vegas encounter with Mr. Lactose Intolerant. Reminds me of the woman outside Foggy Bottom metro with her tin cup and "I am blind" sign. When I plopped an apple into her cup, she said, without touching the fruit, "I don't like apples, gotta buck instead?" But mostly, I still feel guilty enjoying my small pleasures. Peace...

    Misti thank you for reading and faving my story about duck sex. it has changed a lot since you first read it. I have a terrible habit of making edits after a piece is up. But thank you so much, even if it's a bit smaller now, it was a great boost of confidence. xo

    Susan Tepper – May 21, 2011

    Misti, I'm a triple: sun, moon and venus. My hair is wildly out of control, they used a ton of gel in my photo. I also forget to shave my legs. ha!

    Bill Yarrow – May 12, 2011

    Thanks, Misti, for faving "8 New Ways of Looking at Waffles." Appreciate your comments always.

    Roberta – May 04, 2011

    Ahaha, reading that comment gave me a recollection of Bruce's full sensual lips! Apparently that cover art is embedded somewhere deep in my psyche. I devoured all the Sweet Valley High books when I was growing up.

    I had a phase a couple of years back of working the Babysitter's Club and My Little Ponies and things into weird giddy stories. Never SVH though.

    Marc Lowe – May 02, 2011

    Thanks for reading and commenting. Looking forward to reading more of your work soon.

    Thomas Pluck – Apr 09, 2011

    Thanks for your comment on Put it Where it Doesn't Belong... I'm glad you liked it. I hope you feel better soon! At least now, you will never have to worry about laughing so hard your uterus falls out. Just like I can no longer laugh my balls off, as my wife has them in a denture cup by the sink.

    Bill Yarrow – Apr 05, 2011

    Misti, thanks for commenting on "Disappearing Ink." Glad you liked it!
