Ty Unglebower is a freelance writer, author, actor and an introvert. Having been born, grown up and lived in Maryland for his nearly entire life, he can claim either side of the Civil War, but of course claims the Union, since it won. A long time ago.
He starts most of his mornings with Irish Breakfast and intellect. That is to say, he drinks tea and he reads non-fiction.

A Writer's Paris by Eric Maisel
Rate this book

Paris has never been in my top three places I want to see before I die, and this book didn't change that. It did however manage to make the city sound more interesting, especially to the artist, that I would have found it to be on my own.

Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders
Rate this book
Clear rating
As an author, I don't wish to eschew experimentation in writing fiction. Though my own work is generally more linear and less avant-garde, I won't dismiss the concept of playing with plot, wording, format and so on in "novels."

That being said, I have
