About the author (2003)

About the Author: Chris Welch is a highly functional alcoholic and borderline sex addict. Everyone he has lived with asks him to leave, or throws him out, so he primarily lives alone, and in numerous places, including his pick'em-up truck, which is generally parked in the northeastern United States. This existential-humanist's other hobbies (other than drinking and womanizing) include drinking coffee and writing. He is also the inventor of the Live Mime Audio-Only Sex Cam...perhaps you haven't heard it.
