About this author

W.T. Pfefferle was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He moved to the U.S. in the late 1970s, did several years of college work, and then settled in Texas for more than a decade where he taught writing by day and played in bad bar bands at night. He published two books with Prentice Hall in the late 1990s. In 2005 he published Poets on Place (Utah State University Press), a travel memoir. His first collection of poems, The Meager Life and Modest Times of Pop Thorndale, was published in 2007. His new book, My Coolest Shirt, will be published in Spring '15 by The Word Works. He has been married since 1984 and currently lives in New Mexico.
