About the Author
I was born in 1973 and grew up on LongIsland. Disregard what many people have said; Long Island wasn't aterrible place to grow up during the 70s and 80s. My parents and my sister loved me. But I was the least popular kid at school and Blah Blah Blah. You'veheard this shit before. Hell, maybe you even lived it, too, like me. What's important is that I loved to read. As I got into science fictionand fantasy and horror, when I became enthralled with genre books mylocal library was starved for, I got part-time jobs in Junior High andHigh School so I could buy the books I needed, that I craved, thatnourished me.
I went to NYU to study Literature. To study books simply because there was nothing more I wanted to learn everything about.
