William Lobb, who generally goes by Bill, Billy to a few, was born and lived his entire life in New York's Hudson Valley. Leaving a few times, but always finding his way back.
He started writing at a very young age - poetry and short stories. Bill was influenced greatly, early on, by Steinbeck and Hemingway. Finding himself alone once in William Faulkner's Pirates Alley, New Orleans study, sitting under a photo of Hemingway, communing with the ghosts of that room, in a cathartic moment he was changed, and began to take his work as a writer seriously.
He writes stories that more often than not are loosely or not so loosely based on people and places he's known.
Today, he finds himself a landlocked buccaneer, trying to cope with 20th Century mediocrity.
