Pilcrow Blues is written by Daniel P. Finney, a professional paragraph stacker from Des Moines. He wrote his first story for the local newspaper when he was 17 years old. They paid him $25. He’s made a living slinging sentences ever since. Now middle-aged, morbidly obese and working through mental health disorders, he shares his thoughts about daily life, recovery and maybe a few laughs. He seeks to be less Incredible Hulk and more Mr. Rogers.
