LearnMe is a forty-something native New Yorker, father of two, husband to one, sibling of six. He teaches writing and literature at St. Francis College. He is, in theory, a fiction writer (perhaps some day the "in theory" won't be necessary; this is the plan). He loves to cook, reads a lot, and is a serious Red Sox fan.
