Formerly a computer geek and web developer, he now calls himself a writer, and sometimes he even does it for money.
Between 2002 and 2007, he began showing symptoms of what would be later diagnosed as a mental illness.
That sort of sucked.
He lives in New Hampshire with his daughter and coffee pot.
If you want to contact Jeff, please check the FAQ below. Your question might be there, meaning you’ll get an answer right away.
For business inquiries or just to say “hello,” your best option is to send Jeff an email. He checks that once a day. Sometimes twice, if he’s lonely.
You can also find him on Twitter, but he says he pretty much just uses it to block people, and is only half-joking when he says it. Still, you could give it a shot.
Q: I work for an enormous media company and would like to reprint something of yours. We’re not going to pay you, but think of the exposure! So can we?
Q: I work for/am a small/independent site/blogger and would like to reprint something of yours. We’re not going to pay you, but think of the exposure! So can we?
A: Probably not, but email me and maybe we can work something out.
Q: Wow. Do a lot of people expect writers and other creative types to work for free?
A: All the time.
Q: You have a mental illness? What’s your diagnosis?
A: I don’t feel comfortable putting a name on it, because—for me—that would be sticking it in a box. It’s all-pervasive, and affects me in uncountable ways both large and small. I cope, and am fortunate enough to have an easier time with it than many others do, but it’s my life, not a label.
A: A few years ago, I was trying to find a unique username on some site (maybe an online game, I don’t even remember) and after half an hour of trying every combination of my real name, and getting nothing but “that’s already been taken” messages, I just literally typed the first two words which came into my head. Afterward, I found I kind of liked it, as started using it almost everywhere. It’s short, memorable, and (to me) hysterically nonsensical. I think we can all use more lighthearted nonsense in our lives.
Q: Didn’t you used to have another site/blog/YouTube channel?
A: I’ve done a lot of things over the years. The only thing I’ve ever felt I did well and enjoyed doing was write, though, so I’m pretty focused on that, these days. I am enjoying photography, however, and might even be kinda good at it.
