Sam Miserendino is an attorney by day, author by night, and father 24-7. It was in this latter role that Sam was inspired to write about beer-drinking bunnies and bong-smoking bears. After reading books about carb-addicted moose, mice and pigs to his son and daughter for the millionth time, Sam’s thoughts drifted to other animals with other addictions. Currently he and illustrator Mike Odum are working on the third book in their Addicted Animal series. Sam lives in Buffalo, NY with his wife, two children, two dogs and two cats, none of whom, he is happy to report, are addicted to anything more serious than television, chew toys and catnip.
