3rd cousin. Seriously, I have been a professional solo puppeteer for thirty years. I am also the Humor Consultant for the Puppeteers of America.
What First Got Me Interested in Puppetry
My wife and I saw a marionettist performing at a Book Fair on Fifth Avenue in NYC, and we both were intrigued.

If I Were a Puppet, I'd Be...
still wondering why people call for shows for their one-year old
More About Me:
I have served on the boards of both UNIMA and the Puppeteers of America. I have written comedy most of my life, and have a new book about my 30-year puppet career coming out around May 1st. It is called, "Diary of a Doll Wiggler - a Bob's-Eye View Into the Wacky & Wonderful World of Puppetry." I'll tell you all more about that later.

Hi, Bob. I don't think we've actually met, but, of course, I am familiar with you through P of A. Welcome! (I am also one of your friendly administrators here at PuppetHub).
I too am looking forward to your book. I'm a little confused...I went and found it on Amazon.com, but the entry there gives no indication that it isn't out yet (in fact, they seem to indicate a publication date of January 28, 2008). And they say it is in stock. Is this not so?
Rats! I was hoping that somehow Amazon knew something you didn't (come on, it could happen..I often find that major corporations know more about my personal life than I do, doesn't everyone?). Oh well, I'm quite sure it will be worth the wait!
Grats! I am getting me a copy of that book. YOu better authograph it for me! I hope to go to the festival in Savannah. I would be my first@! ;-) I said I was from the Antarctic because I wanted people to think my puppets were cool. Ug!
I was trying to check out your website. Just wanted to let you know I cant activate it. Tells me there is an error. I tried to access it without the like provided and still didnt work. Seems like a server issue and hopefully be back up soon, but thought I should let you know in case you didnt.
