About the Author
FROM MY NOTEBOOK is Joseph R. Halbert's first book that does not involve crayons and lasers. Before he began his writing career, he traveled across three continents, dabbled in guitar slinging, and worked as an attorney, sign spinner, construction laborer, and graduate professor. He lives in Central Texas with his wife, son, and yellow lab. They own the most comfortable couch in the world, and that is where they spend most of their free time. Joseph R. Halbert's website is globeandcrown.com. You can also follow him on Facebook (facebook.com/globeandcrowntx) or listen to his fortnightly podcast, Globe & Crown Radio.
