Author Bio

Fred j Schneider makes his home in upstate New York looking out over six waves of Adirondack Mountains.

During the horrific dawn of disco, when the whole damn country was blinded by that insipid mirrored ball, he raged against the machine, exhausting his SUNY college years wearing a sweat-rimmed Met hat and quixotically paying homage to the, alas, all-too-mortal Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin. It was useless, it was expensive, yet embers still burn.

A humor essayist on Public Radio, Fred's follow up novel, One Less Squirrel in Swellsville, is slated for publication in September 2012.
