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.
Highlights from Falcone Industries
Jan 19 I was on Portlandia again, this time as a nerd in a hunks vs nerds rumble. Not a huge stretch.
Nov 21 A sequel to my monumentally successful video about a group of comedians trying to solve a live escape room. We're back at it and better than ever (at screwing around and letting one person do all the work).
Nov 19 A group of comedians have their pickup basketball game announced by Portland Trail Blazers radio play-by-play announcer Brian Wheeler. Featuring Alex Falcone, Dinah Foley, Matt Monroe, Zak Toscani, Nick Harris, and Brandon Lyons.

Feb 8You can probably picture it. Maybe it almost sounds like an interesting place to visit, a floating dump you could walk across and marvel at simpler times: "Why would anybody throw away this perfectly good VCR? Is this a porn magazine? I've heard of these. It's like somebody printed out the dirty part of the Internet."
