Pat Ellis Taylor lives in Austin, Texas, where she runs the Paperbacks Plus bookstore, and writes, “Soon I am going to write the story of my attempt at making enough money to leave town in a van to live as a hermit in the desert eschewing the world of material gain with the security of a few small bills stuffed in my pocket — first selling fireworks the week before the fourth of July and getting hit by lightning, then dressing up as a giant chicken-balloon seller for the Austin aqua-fest where boozed-up cowboys began to cackle, crow, and flap their wings when they saw me coming and sometimes threatened to set fire to my crepe-paper feathers.”
