J.M. Vasques has written online - as 'Tragic Rabbit'* - accumulating a cult following of nearly a dozen avid fans and one court-certified stalker. He lives in the badlands of California and tries - with limited success - to avoid the more poisonous denizens of the desert.
He's currently working on a Depression-era romance (his grandparents' love story), THE BULLY (non-fiction), a 1950s 'train mystery' and setting up paints for a series of children's books.
Vasques is a former high school teacher and single parent who is now a writer, satirist and, along with tiny service dog Oona Chaplin, a certified support facilitator for Lupus Foundation of America, serving others with SLE - systemic lupus erythematosus.
"A Bully is someone who tries to have your cake and beat it, too."
*'Tragic Rabbit' is a poem from Stan Rice's SOME LAMB.
