The Author


is the work of Dr. Frank Meronk, a graduate of The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and a fellowship-trained specialist in ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Over the course of a thirty-two year Southern California practice devoted to cosmetic oculoplastic surgery, Dr. Meronk performed tens of thousands of first-time and revision blepharoplasty procedures on patients from throughout the United States and abroad.

Unbeknownst to most colleagues and acquaintances, Dr. Meronk has devoted serious time during the past three decades to the art of literary fiction. He is the author of three novels under a pen name as well as an Infinite Jest-length exploration of the devaluation of human memory in the age of the microprocessor. In recent years, his writing has focused on the short story, a literary form that while presently out of favor is gaining in popularity in concert with the Internet-fostered decreasing attention spans of many readers.
