Publisher info

I have been writing a column entitled 'Modern Fables' since 2008 for Wassup Local magazine in Lake County, IL. I am originally from Chicago, married, and residing in Wisconsin. While some kids had to be funny so other kids would like them, I had to be funny so my parents would like me. My life and experience are reflected in this book, which was written by several different people, all of them me, over the course of 13 years. I am donating a percentage from my sales to cancer research.

    I read your Vote poem. If I had known, I would have voted for you also. That would make two votes toward the several million you need. You could do no worse than them. Thank you for sharing.
