I spent 15 years researching the life of 19th century doctor who performed radical surgery on the severely deformed in a time before anesthesia. The book has just been released by Penguin. AMA!
MY SHORT BIO: I am the author of such books as DEAR FUTURE BOYFRIEND (written & published while I was was still in college), HOT TEEN SLUT (my memoir-in-verse about working as writer in porn while I was still a virgin), and WORDS IN YOUR FACE (a history of the New York City poetry slam movement). My most recent book, DR MUTTER'S MARVELS: A TRUE TALE OF INTRIGUE & INNOVATION AT THE DAWN OF MODERN MEDICINE, about the life & times of Mütter Museum founder Dr Thomas Dent Mütter was released by Gotham Books (Penguin) last week.
