IN WHICH AMY DOES VARIOUS THINGS IN THE GREEN MOUNTAIN STATE
Vermont is snuggled warmly betwixt New York and New Hampshire. It is a fine place for skiing, and probably other outdoorsy-type things. Kayaking or hunting or what-have-you. Frankly, all Y.P.R. knows of Vermont (being itself New York-centric) is that two crazed lunatics on a savage sugar high run some sort of heavily fortified ice-cream compound. Anyway, it's a good thing that Y.P.R. and Amy Stender have found each other.
Amy L. Stender lives in the woods, feeding off indigenous roots and berries. Last winter, she got wicked crazy-hungry and took down a 4-point buck with nothing more than dental floss and a pen knife. She runs around in a T-shirt emblazoned “ILOVERMONT” and likes to yell “Funkified!” at strangers. Her favorite reading selections are usually penned by Neil Gaiman, Charles Bukowski, and Hubert Selby Jr. The first graphic novels she read were Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind (volumes 1-4) by Hayao Miyazaki and she hasn’t stopped since. She wants Henry Rollins to know she thinks he’s a hot animal machine and she wishes he would return her phone calls. You can read her work at McSwys and on her blog, Fluid Motion.
