Hey Rick!

Thanks for reading. I’d thought that it would be done with three books, but realized that there are some women in Trappersville that would love to have their own adventures. There will be three more books- Lois, Dee (from the diner) and Pam (Jerry’s wife). I’m just finishing up the first book in a new different series, and will be starting Monsters in the Midwest book 4 in January!(less)

I was at a diner in Chicago with a friend, this was probably 1999 or 2000, and I wrote out a list of things I wanted to do in my lifetime. The list was written in crayon on a diner napkin. I don't remember all of it, but a couple of more interesting items were drive a cab in Seattle and live at a Tibetan monastery for a year.

What would've happened if I had actually done everything on that list? Would Trump be president? Would Prince still be alive? Would Fukushima be the site of an inter dimensional portal?

Wait, I think that happened. I think Fukushima IS the site of an inter dimensional portal...

Anyway... Someday, I think I'll write a book about a 20-something that makes a list at a diner in Chicago, and actually does everything on it ;-)(less)

Wisconsin Vamp by Scott Burtness
"Fun read

I really enjoyed this book, it was a really fun read. The premise was good, and picking a hero like Herb was great. The characters were pretty well developed but I would have liked to get know Stanley better. Maybe he will get his own book? F" Read more of this review »

“I would not have even considered you an appetizer. Rats that have fed on syphilitic sailors would be preferable to drinking from you. I swear, I can smell Krispy Kremes and cheese curds oozing from your every pathetic pore.”
