Quentin R. Bufogle is a freelance writer, blogger, novelist, graphic artist & designer. A former contributing writer to the former Las Vegas CityLife, his work appears in the anthology: "Wish You Were Here: Stories and Essays Inspired by Fabulous Las Vegas Postcards" -- published by the former Stephens Press. He is the author of "Horse Latitudes" (once described as "the best book you'll never read"), and the most frequently quoted unknown since anonymous. He lives in the city formerly known as Las Vegas, Nevada. "Writing is the dragon that lives underneath my floorboards. The one I incessantly feed for fear it may turn and devour my ass. Writing is the friend who doesn't return my phone calls; the itch I'm unable to scratch; a dinner invitation from a cannibal; elevator music for a narcoleptic. Writing is the hope of lifting all boats by pissing in the ocean. Writing isn't something that makes me happy like a good cup of coffee. It's just something I do because not writing, as I've found, is so much worse." -- Quentin R. Bufogle
