I was asked to contribute an interview to the website NFReads.com. The site includes interviews and articles from a range of contributors and a variety of topics. I’m honored and thrilled to be asked for my contribution.
One of the questions was to cite something quirky about yourself.
Here’s my answers:
My father sailed to the South Pole in 1939 with Adm. Byrd, one of the great adventures of the 20th Century.
I was the drummer in the greatest garage band of 14-year-olds to ever come out of Fulton, N.Y., West Hartley Parkway.
When I was eight, I led a labor strike of other youthful oppressed workers. We took umbrage to the notion that the owner of the blueberry patch in Vienna, Maine would pay experienced workers more. So we walked home, five miles or so.
