The Work is Hell tour  featuring: Brandon Christopher, author of “The Job Pirate”.

Brandon Christopher grew up in Los Angeles, and his book “Job Pirate”, is written with wit, panache and ruthless honesty about two dozen of the more than 82 “crappy” jobs he has worked over the last 20 years. These include stints as a mortuary driver, a florist, a mover, a door-to-door water purifier salesman, an  entertainment industry chauffeur, a plumber, a sales clerk, a rehab hotline operator, and the only straight writer at a gay porn magazine publisher.

Tom’s first novel is “Sutterfeld, You Are Not a Hero”.

Larry Duncan currently lives in Long Beach, CA. Where he writes, drinks, and wakes up at an ungodly hour to go to work every day. His poetry and fiction has appeared in various print and online publications, including the Mas Tequila Review, Emerge Literary Journal, Citizens for Decent Literature, the Muddy River Poetry Review, Mused, and the Fat City Review.

Erin Parker started out as an English major, fell in love with Art History, and ended up in art school studying commercial Interior Design.  The best job she ever had was as a Fantasyland Attractions Hostess at Disneyland.  That’s a fancy way of saying she was a ride operator on It’s A Small World, the Matterhorn and Storybookland.  Her first collection of short stories is coming out in late 2015 from Unknown Press.
