About the Author
Libertarian, Objectivist, Transcendentalist, really tall. The character of Bill Metson in The Apathetic was inspired by Isaac “Ike” Marsh, a veteran of the Iraq War. I interviewed Ike and the story I wrote about him was published on the front page of the July 2006 issue of The North Star Monthly, located in Danville, Vermont. Various short stories and news stories I have written have been published in other papers in Vermont, including the Barton Chronicle in Barton, the Caledonian-Record in St. Johnsbury, and the Journal Opinion in Bradford. I won the Journalism Award in both high school at St. Johnsbury Academy, and at my undergrad school, Lyndon State College. I am currently completing my thesis for my English Master’s, with an American Literature concentration, at Montclair State University.
