New Author Photo

In my checkered past as an actor/musician, I’ve posed for dozens of photos. In the past, I’ve enjoyed it. I have an extrovert streak–but it seems to grow thinner and fainter as I mature. And when my editor told me it was time to submit an author photo, I may have panicked a tiny little bit. I mean, it’s one thing to put a band photo up on MySpace, or print a few hundred lithos of a headshot (I may be carbon dating myself here), but to choose the picture that will be printed on thousands of books and distributed all over the world? That was a new feeling. An exciting, but slightly terrifying feeling. So I called in my good musician friend and visual design genius, Zander, and asked him to make that image. I’m grateful to be surrounded by such talented people. Thanks, Z.
