Author: Frank Muschal

Frank Muschal lives in Chicago with his elderly cat, Agatha. (“She’s older than laptops and cell phones, but I’m older than TV.”) He’s been writing and editing for textbook publishers for thirty years and has no guilt feelings about tormenting students all that time. Besides writing, Frank keeps busy playing tennis, riding horses, and fumbling around on his guitar. “I’m no rock star,” he says. “I just want to make me more interesting to myself.”
