Brett Bastard

Biography

Brett was born and raised in Colorado Springs, Colorado which speaks directly to what is wrong with him. He is an uneducated halfarser who has won no writing awards nor contests. He did however, email poorly structured rants to an email list for longer than was appropriate. Brett also authored a nearly yearlong menagerie of stream of consciousness buffoonery loosely based on dating in your 30's. This was until he knocked a woman up twice, which essentially sent him on a path of scrambling to keep a bunch of other humans alive. In his triumphant return to throwing ink down on tree flesh, Brett has scribbled out his memoirs, at first as a means to give the offspring something to remember him by. Not content with only punishing them with this written slideshow, he is now attempting to pummel the masses with it.
