Martin Crabtree, a native of Dorchester, Massachusetts, enjoyed a career as a bassoonist, typesetter, and software trainer in Washington, D.C. Fearing for his sanity, he retired to Florida, where he holds a weak grip on reality. His lifelong philosophy is that life makes no sense, so we might as well all develop a strong love of the absurd.
His second book (Vinca Terrace: a Novel of Comic Condo Consternation) covers life in an imaginary condo for seniors in St. Petersburg, Florida (also imaginary). He has published his third book (Beyond Vinca Terrace: a Comic Christmas Catastrophe), is another book in the Vinca Terrace series that lets Florida residents know that there are (comic) disasters even they haven't seen yet!
