Robb Todd, author of the collection Steal Me for Your Stories, is a recovering journalist. He studied his trade at an unremarkable university in the South and, as a person paid to write words, won a few awards that are even less remarkable. More importantly, he has never seen a pigeon walk backwards. Less importantly, he has lived all over the country. He was lucky enough to live in Hawaii twice. He also lived in Texas twice. And North Carolina twice. Actually, this is his second stop in New York City, too. He does not do things right the first time. www.robbtodd.com
