This fantastical tale, reminiscent of fairytales of old, is the story of a man…well, more of a bean really, if you look at him from the side…let's split the difference and go with bean-shaped man. This is the story of a bean-shaped man caught between two worlds, one of passion and one of practicality. Will he or won’t he win the hand of a somewhat birdy woman? Will too many grandmothers and other ghastly old people send him to an early grave? In the end, gassy pets and even stinkier babies may be the death of him! One thing is for certain, Bernard Wimple leads one heck of a hectic life for a man who just wants to sell men’s hats.
Spritzerville,...Ohio conjures within old fogies those tales of their youth: the Golden Book series, The Wind in the Willows and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, while adding a touch of reality and a groping of humor.

About the Author
Since I was about 12 I've known I wanted to be a writer, but I've taken a damn long time getting around to it. I received a degree in writing from Fitchburg State in Massachusetts. The major didn't require taking a language, so that was a bonus as I am rubbish with foreign languages...just ask the poor little Japanese waitress who thinks I want to eat her head as a sandwich. Anywhooo, after school I worked briefly in journalism, but fell out of love with it really fast. I tried my hand at script writing in Hollywood...well okay, I was living in North Hollywood which is considered as distant as the Sahara if you're one of those Hollywood fancypants blatherskites (yeah, take that!), but I digress. Around about 1999 I opened up a store selling CDs, vinyl and stuff called Jay's CDs & Stuff. I caught a lot of flak for the name. Apparently it's okay for Linens & Things or Bed, Bath & Beyond or Mailboxes Etc to have such wacky names. I can only imagine what they would've said if I'd gotten my way and the store had been named what I originally wanted: Jay's CDs & Shit. A couple years passed, love came to town and I 'caught that train' back to California where I've been ever since, reading and studying the craft of writing.
