Jeremy Hoevenaar lives in Brooklyn and shifts books at an undisclosed and conveniently located Barnes and Noble in Manhattan. He was born in Hackensack, New Jersey in 1977. He holds no degrees. He tries to consider this an asset. He could have been an alchemist. He could have been a blacksmith. Or an airline pilot. He is an untrained musician. He has no siblings. He used to like making pronouncements but has given that up. He tries hard to take things seriously. He has a weakness for heavy metal. He believes that everything is a monument to something.
