Here Goes…

Welcome to Bark Bark Woof Woof, a blog dedicated to my take on life, the universe and everything with my unique sense of dry amusement. The title comes from a guy I once worked for who said “bark bark woof woof” instead of “et cetera, et cetera,” and in memory of my dog, Sam, who was my best friend for 13 years.

I’m moderate-to-liberal gay man with a long background in theatre studies (BFA, University of Miami; MFA, University of Minnesota; PhD, University of Colorado), specifically in playwriting and dramatic literature. I also write novels and short stories. I live in Miami, Florida and work for the public school system. Other interests include antique cars (station wagons and Mustangs) and weightlifting. (Gee, this is beginning to sound like a personal ad, but hey, I’m single, early 50’s, of Welsh ancestry, in good shape, have a decent income, don’t drink or smoke. Drop me a line.)

This blog is a founding member of The Liberal Coalition, and I encourage you to visit to the other members. I welcome your comments, and look forward to those contributions to enrich this blog – I sure can’t carry it alone.

Bobby Cramer, aka “Mustang Bobby,” is the main character in my current novel-in-progress. Like me, he’s an optimistic but wary guy just trying to get through life without bumping into the furniture, and he drives a Mustang. So do I.
