Bill Pieper is a voyeur and exhibitionist, perfect skills for writing fiction. To inspire novels or stories, he eavesdrops and spies on everyone he encounters, soaking up words, gestures, physical features...read more and behavioral tropes. Then he writes it down, flips open his raincoat and exposes the whole sordid lot to as many eyeballs as possible. So far, he hasn't been arrested for this, but everyone in his Northern California haunts agrees it's a matter of time.
