Product Information

When Brooks Butler Hays dream of a horseshoes national championship was shattered by a beer bottle shard in his left heel, he decided to become a writer. Brooks fancies himself a utility player in the game of prose and continues to search for that one big book deal, the one that might allow him to return to his lost dream of professional lawn sporting. Like most narcissists, he believes he deserves that break. Jeremy Stein is an art director/designer/illustrator with skills in storyboarding and animation. He has won a CLIO award in the category of Innovative Media. http://jeremysteindesign.com/
