About the Author


Josh Aiello cut his literary teeth writing scathing editorials for the school paper, most notably J'accuse Janitor Carlson, which earned him after-school detention for one week. He attended film school at Boston University, where his signature string of bad luck with women resulted in the production of several well-received short films. After graduation, Josh co-wrote and co-directed the feature film Island, which attracted some attention, mainly from his creditors and mother. A former employee of the Emmy Awards in New York, he recently re-entered the fray of indie film production in an effort to pay his rent. He lives alone in Manhattan and pines after his French neighbor.

Matthew Shultz is a native Michigander living in New York City. A sucker for a pretty face, Matthew enjoys bicycle rides, macaroni and cheese, and ice hockey. He "studied" art at a small college in central Illinois, working summers as a pet caricaturist. In the years since, his drawings have appeared in any number of esoteric and obscure periodicals. He is not Jewish, and has no idea how that got started. Behind Matthew's disagreeable exterior, he can be quite compassionate and sincere.
