Vincent Yanez is from a small town in Arizona. He lives with the woman he calls 'Egg', her two she-devil cats and the ghost of his schnauzer, Mr. Sidney Bernstein. Mr. Yanez has won no great literary awards or recognition, but waits for the frenzy of adoration to begin at any moment. He enjoys the smell of rain, long walks on the beach and the crunch of a warm, crispy tater tot. He is the author of several books, screenplays, cartoon collections, photography collections and poetry written under the name Oscar Friar.
