Bud Hawthorne is a misanthropic former school teacher. He crawls around the internet looking for ghostwriting work, and pretends this will pay his bills until it doesn't. He also plays jazz bass at clubs, and promotes himself irregularly, on a website url of his own name.
As an author, he enjoys writing music and film critiques, as well as short fiction for Seven Eleven Stories. Recently, Seven Eleven Stories agreed to edit and help prepare for distribution his collection of essays entitled, "The Bud Hawthorne Revue--Volume 1: A Music Teacher's Lament," for distribution right here on Smashwords.
