About the author (2005)

Andrew Nolan is a long-standing journalist who has received the most coveted award his industry can bestow. Unfortunately he cant tell you which one, because we live in a world where the financial stability of his household could experience turbulence if he attached his real name to this project. He continues to believe that future generations will more readily acknowledge and accept that relationships are a spectrum with monogamy on one end, polyamory on the other end, and most people falling somewhere in-between. The view from that vantage point, he firmly believes, is pretty spectacular.
