About the Author

Theodore Hayes

I work in a high-end restaurant kitchen on South Beach. Everything that you read in ‘The Psychological Impairment of the Horoscope,’ concerning George in the kitchen has happened to me in real life albeit not collectively. I have lived on Miami Beach for twelve years and I have seen people come and go. These stories are the literary paintings my eyes see.
