I wrote a novel! Isn't that crazy? Here's a summary:
Sofia is just a normal high school girl--worried about getting her homework done and looking cool in the lunchroom--when HE shows up: a devastatingly handsome new kid, mysteriously covered in decaying bandages and staring at her from the empty holes where his eyes should be. She thinks he's just a hipster, but is there more to this handsome stranger than meets the eye? Yes. He's a mummy. Not really making a secret about this, the twist is he's a mummy.

Welcome, Internet Friend!
Alex Falcone is a comedian and writer from Portland, OR. He's a regular on the IFC show Portlandia and has appeared at numerous comedy festivals including Bridgetown, Bumbershoot, Sketchfest, and the Brooklyn Comedy Festival. He's written for The Portland Mercury, The Willamette Week, and the public radio show Live Wire, and his work has been quoted in Rolling Stone, VOX, Boing Boing, and been featured on the front page of Reddit. Salt & Straw even named an ice cream flavor after him and it was delicious.
And if that wasn't enough, he's the author of the young adult book Unwrap My Heart about a girl who falls in love with a sexy mummy.
Despite these modest accomplishments, he somehow remains totally down to earth and approachable.

Mar 2The best part of traveling is the little differences. On a macro level, the world is pretty homogenized. But between the Starbuckses, there are subtle touches that give you a true sense of place. Currently I'm in Ontario, Canada and while the weather is awful and the pizza is worse, I've found a couple unique delights.
