Len: "I dropped out of NYU film school in the mid-80s to play guitar and write songs for Woofing Cookies. We were a punk-pop four piece -- think R.E.M. meets the Ramones -- that toured up and down the East Coast, and had two singles and one full-length LP on Midnight Records. The band broke up in 1987 and I followed my other passion, books. I've worked in the book industry ever since. And, of course, I write. And I write, And I write, write, write. My first novel, The Scar Boys -- it's labeled as young adult, but I've never really liked labels -- published January 2014. It is, not surprisingly, a rock and roll coming of age story. No vampires or dystopian future, just a messed up boy and his guitar. (I have nothing against vampires or dystopian futures. I loved The PassageThe Hunger Games, and The Road.) Scar Girl, the continuation of The Scar Boys' story, came out Spring 2016. My next book, Life in A Fishbowl. I recenlty moved from Connecticut to Colorado to buy the Tattered Cover Book Store with my super awesome wife, Kristen, our eight year old son Charlie, and six year old son, Luke -- and one very large cat."
