Marcus Brutlag spends much of his day trying to find time to write, and when that time finally arrives, he must usually spend a generous amount of time listening to and playing good music in order to quiet the voices of tiny children bouncing around his head before mustering a coherent sentence. Having traveled and lived frugally by the pen for the better part of a decade, Mr. Marcus now teaches elementary school and domestically resides in Encinitas.
