About meStarbuck O'Dwyer, a native of Rochester, New York and a graduate of Princeton, Oxford and Cornell, writes novels, essays, short stories, screenplays and music under his given middle name. His critically-acclaimed debut novel, Red Meat Cures Cancer (Random House/Vintage Books), won two national writing awards for humor (IPPY, Foreword Reviews), appeared on several best-seller lists, and was a featured selection of the 2007 One Book One Vancouver reading program as chosen by the Vancouver Public Library. His writing, which has been described as "comic genius" by Kirkus Reviews, has been published in forums as diverse as Entertainment Weekly, Flaunt, Toro, Japanophile, the Journal News, PW Daily and the Boston Globe, and he has appeared on over 350 radio and television programs including guest spots on ESPN, WGN, Voice of America and PBS. His collection of stories, How to Raise a Good Kid, a finalist in the 2012 Indie Reader Discovery Awards (parenting), a finalist in the 2011 Book of the Year Awards (essays, humor) sponsored by Foreword Reviews, and both a national and category best-seller in China, has been translated into Afrikaans, German, Chinese, Norwegian, Dutch, Italian, Greek and Portuguese, and is presently being translated into Spanish. Similarly, his second novel, Goliath Gets Up, a finalist in the 2012 Indie Reader Discovery Awards (humor) has been translated into Chinese and is presently being translated into Portuguese. His latest story collection, High School Dance, a 2016 Global Ebook Awards gold medalist (non-fiction humor/comedy) and a 2016 Foreword Reviews INDIES Book of the Year Awards finalist (non-fiction humor), reached #1 on the Amazon kindle best-seller list in both the Humor & Entertainment and Parenting & Relationships categories and has been translated into Spanish, Italian and Portuguese. In addition, songs that O'Dwyer composed have been licensed by both the Telemundo and Country Music Television networks and featured in several of their shows.
