Peter Thomas Bullen
PETER THOMAS BULLEN is confused about bios. Do you discuss pivotal moments in your life, assuming there were pivotal moments, or do you discuss your heartbreaking lack of pivotal moments, or do you discuss your phobias, your first girlfriend Phoebe, or something else beginning with p, like your own name? Or do you list literary credits? If you list literary credits, then mine come down to sPARKLE & bLINK, Eleven Eleven, LA Review of Books, Red Light Lit, Sweet Wolverine, and Oakland Review. Plus I have a chapbook out from Nomadic Press titled Wallflower, which I am shy and excited about
