LK: Do you ever run into someone who says, “You write WHAT?”
BT: I have several lives. Writer. Office worker dude. And
parent. All of which I keep fairly separate, though people I work with
know I write, even if I don’t talk about it much. As parent, however, I
am engaged in things like drop-offs and fundraisers, and parent
gatherings, and in that world, while people know about my day job, I’m
mostly not known as a writer. Still people occasionally find out about
the books, and sometimes they even read them, and when they do, they
usually say things like, whoa, what, the drugs, and the violence, and
the blow jobs, is that fiction, because you, that so doesn’t seem like
you worker, dad, guy, right?
