About this author

I am the author of the YA title, Stupid Fast (June 2011 from Sourcebooks Fire). I also wrote The Miracle Letters of T. Rimberg, a Novel from Three Rivers Press. When I'm not writing books, I'm writing for Radio Happy Hour or developing ridiculous musical bits.

When I'm not writing, I'm teaching writing at Minnesota State, Mankato, which means I write a lot of comments about writing on student writing.

Writing a lot of writing and reading about writing and writing on reading.

That’s what I’ll be discussing tonight at the Ridgedale Library, which must be directly on the line between Minnetonka and Hopkins, because it seems like the address is both places. 7pm Ridgedale Library 12501 Ridgedale Dr Hopkins, MN I’m not against either gross-out humor or jokes about bathrooms.

I'm With Stupid by Geoff Herbach
"Four stars for the individual books, five stars for the series as a whole. Because the total is more than the individual parts, even though I think the individual parts are pretty great. I love Felton. I love Andrew. And Gus and Grandpa and Abby...." Read more of this review »
I'm With Stupid by Geoff Herbach

“If you act out of love, whatever you do is both perfect and right. It doesn't matter if you're a deep thinker or a squirrel nut if you act out of love. Crap starts getting seriously screwed if something else gets in the way, something like fear or revenge or even victory or being famous or some other dumb thing. The only thing we need to do is figure out what we really love.”
Geoff Herbach, Nothing Special

“Then we kissed for about 25 years, I think." (184)”
Geoff Herbach, Stupid Fast

“Have you ever noticed you can't get away from yourself? There is no way to get away from oneself. You're always there with you.”
Geoff Herbach, Stupid Fast
