I am a big fan of a Cartoon Network show called Squidbillies. It's about hillbilly squids, it's incredibly offensive and way funnier than it has any right to be. This episode, in which the son of the hillbilly squid family takes up reading, taught me a little something about us authors, courtesy of horror legend Dean Koontz.
Yes my friends, most popular authors are in fact illiterate. I can read, so I guess that's why I'm not quite as successful as Robert Ludlum (yet!).
