Author Biography - William Shakespeare
Adam Sexton is the author of Master Class in Fiction Writing and the editor of the anthologies Love Stories, Rap on Rap, and Desperately Seeking Madonna. He has written on art and entertainment for The New York Times and The Village Voice, and he teaches fiction writing and literature at New York University and critical reading and writing at Parsons School of Design. A graduate of Columbia University and the University of Pennsylvania, he lives in Brooklyn with his wife and son. Hyeondo Park, at the age of 10, moved from Seoul, South Korea to Dallas, Texas with his mother and two brothers to reunite with his father. He had a special passion for comics growing up, and he sometimes waited until midnight at the local bookstore to get the latest issue. He loved the laughter, the excitement, the danger, and the suspense of comics, which he could read over and over again and could buy on his weekly allowance. It is one of many reasons why he attended and graduated from the School of Visual Arts in 2006 as a cartoonist. Now he hopes that his comics will provide the same excitement and entertainment value for others as they did for him when he was young.
