About the Author
Drew Bridges is a retired psychiatrist who has restored himself to his default identity of English major. He grew up in rural North Carolina among box turtles, ticks, blackberry patches and more cousins than can be counted, all of whom lived within walking distance.
Beginning his schooling at Gardner Webb Jr. College, he ended up in medical school at UNC-Chapel Hill, abandoning for the moment his author ambitions, having lost confidence in earning a living as an English major.
After 40 years in psychiatric practice, most in rural mental health centers, he realized that along the way he had gathered stories galore, and began a new career as storyteller and writer.
He lives now in Wake Forest, NC with his wife Lauren who is a psychotherapist. His only child, Suzanna is a musician earning a living in NYC, and with her husband Andy, raising her own daughter Penny.
