} about the book
When I was dating a woman in my post-college days, I would always tell her stories about the juvenile, immature, borderline criminal stuff we did in college. She’d always want me to tell her more stories, saying she’d never really done anything in college except attend class and study. What the F#%k?! We did everything in college EXCEPT study. Well, that’s not entirely true. We played hard, but we worked pretty damned hard too.
One night Wanda and I were at a party and she asked me to tell everyone a story from my college days. I took a slow sip of beer as I pondered her question, trying to buy myself more time. This could go one of two ways; either I’d be the dope guy at the party with a cool story, or it could go sideways and I’d just be the dope at the party. But they persisted. There was no way getting around it. Plus I’d had a few drinks so what the hell, I dove right in. I pulled out all the stops telling the best in my arsenal of stories, and when my opus was complete…
“You should put that in a book,” someone shouted over the applause and laughter.
So that’s exactly what I did. It’s all there: the good, the bad and the ugly. Call it what you will: beer-laced nostalgia, midlife crisis, misguided, bad idea. Who’s to say? To me its just some stupid shit we did in college.
} about the author
Kevin Brown is a designer, writer and traveler.
He received a Master’s degree in architecture from Tulane University in New Orleans, a city renowned not only for its eccentric charm and mystique, but for its music, cuisine, culture and tradition; a city ideally suited for the study of art and architecture.
Born in Southern California, Kevin has enjoyed a lifetime of travel. His father’s work as an air traffic controller in the United States Air Force required his family to relocate often; they lived in eight states and three foreign countries throughout his early life. As a result, Kevin became a keen observer with an eye for detail, both of which are reflected in his writing.
Kevin currently resides in the high desert in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He continues his pursuit of creativity through writing, graphic design and illustration and continues to seek out new travel destinations to fuel his creative spirit.
