I’ve always had a soft spot for snails. It probably started in childhood when I’d accidentally step on one and feel an immense sense of guilt. It’s not like those poor little guys could get out of the way.

So this is my make good. It's a children’s book I wrote about a snail who's tired of taking life at a snail's pace. Go Fast, Goo was originally published by Tate Publishing in 2012. Since then, Mr. Tate and his son have gone to jail for embezzlement, extortion, and racketeering. I wish I was making that up.
