Mike Malloy Explains
By Mike Malloy

Series Description:

Don't understand the latest trends? Curious to know more about something but are too embarassed to ask? After reading Mike Malloy Explains, you'll probably understand it even less. 

In this series, you'll read about NFTs, cryptocurrency,  and a host of topics Mike doesn't understand, but what he lacks in knowledge he makes up for with non-lucid commentary and delusions of adequacy. 

Mike Malloy got a PhD at Princeton when he entered an unlocked professor's office and took one off the wall. In his spare time he practices alchemy and wonders why the birds in his neighborhood never eat the Belgian waffles he makes for them.

Author Bio For Mike Malloy:

I’ve been a journalist for more than 20 years, mostly with the Des Moines Register in Iowa. My byline has appeared in 67 newspapers including the Washington Post, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Chicago Tribune, and Miami Herald. I’ve covered a congressional campaign, two state legislatures, a murder trial, school boards, and sports. I’ve talked to Members of Congress Dick Durbin and Steny Hoyer, presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, baseball Hall of Famers Tom Seaver and Ryne Sandberg, and Olympians Lolo Jones and John Carlos. Interviewing Mr. Carlos – who along with Tommie Smith protested the treatment of African Americans with a raised fist on the medal stand at the 1968 Olympics – was a career highlight.  

I won an Iowa Newspaper Association award for a story about a cold case and won a fiction contest from Des Moines-based publication City View. My prize was a $25 gift certificate which I kept secret from the IRS (this is just between us). 

I have written my first book "Sound and Fury Signifying Something: Why People Love Heavy Metal". An excerpt is available on my website www.mikemalloywriter.com I am seeking representation, and if you've made it this far into this bio, you're hired!
