About the Author

Author Info

The love-child of Carrie Bradshaw and David Sedaris, Koelen puts new meaning into the term "living life to the fullest." His two (soon-to-be THREE!) collections of outrageous autobiographical essays gives a hilariously raw and brutally honest look into the imperfect world around him.

In every story, he grabs life by the balls and in true comedic form, he encourages his readers to do what he does: embrace living and dance in your underwear. "I've always said that if you don't like something about yourself, then change it. Make the effort to embrace what you truly want to be. Be who you really are. Life is too damn short to live under somebody else's rules or to give a high holy hell as to what other people think you should be. Embrace yourself: you've only got one of you."

"Life is about rising up. Living for love. Making lemon drop martinis out of lemons. Dancing in my underwear. And turning something negative into a positive."

Check out Dancing in My Underwear and its salacious sequel: Volume, Too
