Perry Crowe has edited books of fiction and nonfiction, edited magazines and newspapers, run a book editing and copywriting service, and written hard news, fantastical fiction, jacket copy and product descriptions, cultural criticism, cartoons, plays, and comic books –and it’s all here. So roll up your sleeves, put on a bib, warm up a pot, and gird your loins.
Perry was born in Mounds View, Minnesota, a northern suburb of St. Paul. He earned a degree in English, with an emphasis on writing, from the University of Iowa, where he participated in the Undergraduate Writers Workshop in Fiction. Then he headed to Los Angeles to pursue work as a screenwriter, spent a dozen years in the entertainment industry, wrote a book, and ducked out of the picture show. Following years in the alternative press, Perry landed an editorship at the Los Angeles Times, then moved to New York City where he ran a book review service and book editing service for Kirkus Media. While in New York, he wrote an off-off-Broadway play for a mailman and did some live comedy (sketch and stand-up). He then relocated to Carlsbad, California, for the job of managing editor at Hay House. Now he lives by the beach and follows his dreams.
