Introduction When I realized I was probably a better writer than I was a cartoonist, I abandoned the dream of being a syndicated comic strip artist. Ten years or so later, I finally had an idea good enough to turn into a novel. In my spare time, I "maintain" a pair of blogs devoted to these respective hobbies.
Favorite Movies Raising Arizona, Waiting for Guffman, The Incredibles, City Lights, Broadcast News, My Fair Lady, The North Avenue Irregulars and virtually any MGM musical.
Favorite Music Jimmy Buffett, Sinatra, Beatles, Elvis, The Bad Examples, Stan Getz, Dave Brubeck, Oscar Peterson, Spanic Boys, Iguanas, rockabilly, swing and assorted kitschy lounge and tropicalia.
Favorite Books Carl Hiaasen, James Lee Burke, most Stephen King, Sinclair Lewis, A Confederacy of Dunces
