It was during the measles outbreak that one of the boys got hold of some pink fingernail polish.
He painted daubs of splotches on my outsides facing the street part of me.
Then he went around the bedroom and gave all of the baby dolls a really bad outbreak. One of the girls cried inconsolably and the boy got a sound spanking. Continue reading

2. Where did the idea for the work you are promoting arise?
From a severely twisted dream that woke me out of a dead sleep. Continue reading
I was a gathering place for people who socialized, not just a bar where you go up and order a beer and take it back to a beat down table where friends consumed as much as they could going from happy to sad to confrontational back to happy again. Sorry, I started to rant, there.

4. Tell us about the most exciting place you have ever visited?
I visited Scotland when I was in college. It was the first time I ever traveled anywhere on my own. I figured why start with an in-state road trip when you can fly internationally instead? Scotland was fantastic—I felt like I’d been there before when I got off the plane. I was staying with my best friend from high school, so I got to visit places off the main tourist tracks.

I came up with that idea largely because I wanted to write about where I’d been in Scotland and show some of the love I felt for the place while I was there. Continue reading
