The only author banned from writing for daily newspapers in all 48 contiguous states.

Background Information

Jeff Stanger was born in 1968 under mysterious circumstances that may or may not have included CIA involvement. He grew up in Indiana and took to writing at an early age. In 1986, he enrolled at Indiana University where he spent the better part of a decade. Despite being handed a degree and a mandate to leave campus, he managed to hang around Bloomington for another 6 years before finally moving to Indianapolis.

In 2005, he released his first novel, Trolley Dodgers, based on a column he wrote for the now defunct BC Magazine. (Nearly all of the newspapers and magazines he has worked for have gone under, thus earning him the distinction of being the only writer banned from gainful employment at every major newspaper and periodical in the 48 contiguous states.)

Trolley Dodgers was very well received and has earned the author enough money to keep his two turtles fed (He still has to work for a living). The book is a humorous look at the town of Bloomington, IN as they try to buy the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Kansaska was released in 2008. Although it's hard to pronounce, it's easy to read and that might be why it's been a hit on Amazon's Kindle application. The book follows a season in the mythical K.R.A.P. League and is a splendid return to the glory days (1940's) of minor league baseball.

Up next are The Scarlet Dirigible (a Steampunk novel) and Delicious Fiction (a romantic comedy).
