Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Bill Dodds is a journalist and author of three over-the-hill humor titles: How to Survive Your 40th Birthday, What You Don't Know About Retirement, and Are You Over the Hill? He lives in Mountlake Terrace, WA.

More About the Author

Bill Dodds has been writing since the age of six when . . .

No, wait. That was printing. And he got Ds in that.

He started writing in . . .

No, wait. That was cursive. And, again, his grades were not stellar.

Ah, but creative writing . . . ! After his blockbuster first novel, "The Christmas Ball" (written in the first or second grade), he . . .

Well, what he did was write only for school assignments and never read ten books from the library for the summer reading program. Ever. No certificate for him.

After he was sent to prison . . .

No, wait.

After he went to boarding school at the tender age of fourteen he started to read more (pre-Internet days and only one non-cable TV set in the entire building) and started to write more.

No, wait.

He had some great teachers in grade school and high school and college who helped him learn how to write, how to write better, and how to write professionally.

He has cranked out a lot of books, like making so many pounds of sausages.

No, wait.

He is a prolific writer.

Ooh. That sounds good.

Stop here, Bill.

Stop, stop, stop.

No wait.

Buy some of his books.

Good.

Now stop.
