John Author


I live in rural Illinois between two cornfields. I'm a psychology undergrad, featured columnist/editor for The Tattooed Buddha, and an ordained Lay Buddhist. I write poems, short stories, columns, and make progressive rock music. I love philosophy, astronomy and a 50/50 mixture of unsweetened green/black tea. I hope to make a living in the mental health field with a focus on preventing mental illnesses from developing.
