Author's Bio

The biography that interests us (myself and Dennis Straus) isn’t the biography that interests everyone. Our idea of biography or autobiography is more like a daily sketchbook and our sketchbook (an autobiography of daily looking and thinking) can be found in our two Green Integer novel/journal volumes (ABC STREET and HANK FOREST'S PARTY) and in our online extension of those volumes, MONICA'S CHRONICLE. Taken together they form an unconventional, entirely outward-looking autobiography of experience.
