About the Author
Chuck Sigars has been writing a weekly column for the Beacon Publishing newspapers in western Washington state since 2001, along with the occasional essay for the Seattle Times, a couple of blogs, various online writing, and something that looked suspiciously like a ransom note but really wasn't (long story). He continues to be an unnatural tool user, a marginal cook, a haircut waiting to happen and, as it turns out, 50 years old. Although he has lost weight. He anticipates his next book, a collection of new essays, to be published in 2009. But then he says that all the time.
