About the author

I am the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent can be found at LosingMyReligions.net. Currently, I am President of One Step for Animals; previously, I was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before my unfortunate encounter with activism, I was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). My hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. I live in Tucson with my soulmate and reluctant editor Anne, along with the occasional snake and scorpion.

Bonus Happy Post! Color Paperback Exceeds Expectations!

I originally wasn't planning to even publish a hard copy of Losing My Religions, but enough people asked, so I have a print-on-demand paperback version at Amazon.

A surprising number of people have ordered copies or asked for a signed copy. The print quality of the text is great, but the grey-scale pictures are lousy (although I'm assured worth it for what they add to the story).

This demand made me look into other options, and we just received the color print version from Barnes and Noble Press. (It is smaller in size -- smaller font, less white space.) The picture quality is shockingly good! 

I have no idea if it is worth 2x the price, but I'm surprised to say: Maybe? 

Note: All the "for sale" editions are priced as low as they'll let me -- there are basically zero royalties. If you'd like a signed copy, just let me know (mattballaz (at) gmail.com). I only have the one copy of the color version as of now (more coming in two weeks) but I have plenty of the less expensive and larger black-and-white versions. 

Song: A version of U2's "One" I'd never heard!

A picture that is much better in the color edition!
