    About the Author

    When not transmitting Wi-Fi signals from his Cubs hat, Todd W. Carter likes to stare out the window, contemplate world travel he’ll likely avoid because of pesky shoe inspections, and dream of selling 100,000 copies of this book. He’s single, lives in west Michigan, and hopes this bio leads to a date with a female reader. (E-mail him at date@toddcarter.com.) Due to advances in the medical sciences, the 39-year-old Carter is postponing his midlife crisis until 2014. This and much, much more on his web site at www.toddcarter.com.
