Atty's Attic

My attic is dusty and has a plethora of junk in it, but it's a fun place to hang out, learn about authors and listen to an occasional stupid story. If you don't mind the dust, I'd love to have you.

Cusper Lynn sings The Ramones “I wanna be sedated”

I want to welcome to my attic a very talented yet odd fella. Come on in and tell us, who are you and where did you come from?

I am Cusper Lynn.  I am a Midwestern alien.   I’ve spent most of my formative years split between the Midwest and the Eastern Seaboard.  I have Midwestern sensibilities and East Coast cynicism.   I’m perpetually offended by everything that I absolutely expect to see.

Obviously you’re a writer, what is the name of your book and the general plot?

Facebook Ate My Marriage (a sublime comedy and memoir), is a first person, comedic-novel adventure of drugs, divorce, internet addiction and insanity in the age of social media. While doing legal battle with his soon-to-be-ex-wife Dr. DeeAnn Lynn, DDS and seeing it broadcast on Facebook, Cusper finds himself beset by property association officers, opera zealots and well-meaning friends. In the comic adventure that follows questions are answered as to evolution, a test for the divorce gene, the secret prayer of every parent and the most pressing question for Dr. Cupser Lynn, DDS; “Why Florida?”

Where did you come up with the idea?

I was trapped in a social media marketing seminar at a publishing conference while going through a divorce.

Which of your characters do you like the most and why?

While Grandma Lynn is far and away reader’s favorite character, for her practical and sane world view -Birth, Diversion, Death – my favorite is Robert Hershaw.  His late in life transformation from a fellow inmate and trustee in a HOA community to a bohemian artist surprised me.  It’s a wonderful experience to have your characters surprise you.

Which one do you hate the most and why?

Dr. Dexter Douglas, cosmetic dentist.    He’s that person who takes you to dinner and makes you miserable, but pays for the dinner.    He’s that “friend” who, in the course of an evening, manages to find every psychic scab and picks at it until you start bleeding again.  He’s the person you seriously want something bad to happen to.

 

You’re stranded on an island and you are granted three things;

The first thing you’re granted is an iPod with only one song loaded, what is it?

Vivaldi’s Four Seasons

Nice choice

The second item is a book with the last chapter missing, what is it and who wrote it?

The Eyre Affair: A Thursday Next Novel By Jasper Fforde

And the third thing you’re granted on this island is a lunchbox with a sandwich and a full thermos, yummy, what kind of sandwich and drink would you appreciate?

The sandwich would be made by my wife, Jindi.  It would be on ummy-yummy bread, with humus, prosciutto, provolone and pesto.  Love means never having to say “No” to garlic.

As to a drink, it’s an island, so the only sensible drink is a Cuba Libre.

Eclectic taste, interesting.

 

What is the biggest mistake you have made in your life? Not writing or publishing mistake – any mistake. Even if it happened in 3rd grade, I wanna know about it.

If I could have my kids without having gone through the marriage, then it would be my first marriage.  But, that being a logical impossibility, I would have to say it was not taking the TV Guide assistant editor proficiency test more seriously.  Apparently sarcasm and disgust are only things TV Guide assistant editors are allowed to express as they come to the end of their careers.

Ouch!

 

What would you do for a Klondike bar?
Sing the Ramones’ I Wanna Be Sedated

 

You’re still stranded on that island and two people show up, the character you love the most, and the one you hate the most, and they both know what you said about them. What do you do?

Pray that one of them brought a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon.  If one of them did then Dr. Dexter Douglas will be a happy pig for about half an hour.  Which will give me and Robert Hershaw enough time to plan for a long pork luncheon.
