Yes, you’ve heard this a billion times before, but I love your work! Like you once did, I currently am spending my time by studying to be a SERIOUS ARTIST, but I may someday come to my senses. Your writing is a constant reminder that some things are best not taken too seriously (although I think that there are bits of seriousness in your books-no matter what you claim). I love your use of name irony, I’ve laughed aloud many times while reading your books. My favorites are Young Adult Novel, and Devil In the Drain.
Sculptor David Nyvall, with whom I apprenticed 3 years, went to Cranbrook, (long considered the best art school there is). And I personally ate two meals in a Lebanese Reataurant in Bloomfield Hills, (or the next town--I forget which). Serious artist? Seriously? Wow.
