Colin Dodds is an award-winning author and filmmaker, whose works include including Pharoni, Ms. Never and The 6th Finger of Tommy the Goose. He grew up in Massachusetts and lived in California briefly, before finishing his education in New York City. Since then, he’s made his living as a journalist, editor, copywriter and video producer. His work has appeared in Gothamist, The Washington Post along with more than three hundred other publications, and has been praised by luminaries such as David Berman and Norman Mailer. Colin’s books and screenplays have been longlisted, shortlisted or honored more than a dozen times in the last ten years. His short films have screened at festivals around the world, and he once built a twelve-foot-high pyramid out of PVC pipe, plywood and zip ties. Forget This Good Thing I Just Said, a first-of-its-kind literary and philosophical experience (the book form of which was named a finalist for the Big Other Book Prize for Nonfiction), is now available as an app for the iPhone. He lives in New York City, with his wife and children.
