Here's the author info: 8th grade. After having a guy twist my hat around my neck to knock me out, I came to thinking I was going to be a great writer. College. Acceptance into the noted Iowa Writer's Workshop confirmed my grand entrance into the hall of famed writers and by the time I was 30 I would be hailed by the press. Middle years. I published here and there--mostly nowhere--until I ended up in science by some cosmic accident, published two books, numerous articles and too many book chapters. Old guy. Now that I'm finally mature enough to write something of inestimable value, I am self-publishing. After all, in my experience with publishing companies, you end up doing the marketing yourself. So I guess I'll have to make lots of friends. You included.
Here's the real deal: How to live. We may live long or short lives, but did we really live? How much do we give away? Time is our most valuable gift and we treat it like it goes on forever. It doesn't. So let's live it as participants and not as spectators. Let's be the ones who tell stories instead of spending our lives being entertained by questionable people.

Turn It Down
by Jerry Sedgewick
"Turn It Down" is a laugh-out-loud story that follows four quirky high school seniors; their science experiment on the effect of ear-bleeding music on mice; and what happens with a mouse named Megadeath, a TV reporter, a dead guppy, and a bumbling guy who thinks he's in love.
