About the author (2006)

D. W. MARTIN spends his days working in book publishing and his nights writing and performing comedy at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York City. Even though he has won seven Nobel Prizes, he is most proud of being the runner-up Employee of the Month in April 1997. His high school senior class voted him Most Likely to Write a Memo. How true!
