Name: Bonnie Pipkin, AKA Bones

Occupation: Writer/Adjunct Professor/Teaching Artist/Wedding Officiant/Lover/Dreamer

Hometown: Chico, CA

Lived in NYC since: 2003 (and before that, 1998-1999)

Current Neighborhood: Bushwick

If I could have dinner with any celebrity, it’d be with: Amy Schumer or Stephen Colbert

One extra fun fact about me: Ever hear of the naked waitress?

Three things I’d like to accomplish by the time we make it to all the end-of-the-lines:

1. To complete my Master of Fine Arts degree in Writing — done! January 2014, Vermont College of Fine Arts. Who knew that it would take longer to finish riding the subway system than getting my MFA?

2. Publish my Young Adult Novel — done! Aftercare Instructions comes out in 2017 with Flatiron Books. I’m over the moon! And still riding the rails…

3. To perfect my pop, lock, and drop – still working on that one.

    Bones, you know that if you had dinner with Ru you’d only dine on Tic Tacs, right? Fuck it. I’m in too
