I am a cultural and ethnic mongrel — but, make no mistake…we pound puppies are a hale, hearty lot. We generally hail from felonious, deplorable, difficult origins, and I am no exception. We are scrappers and survivors. We birth babies in bathtubs, vineyards, and cardboard boxes. What might prove dangerous or even lethal to others barely registers with my kind. Nothing slows us down or stops us; we thrive on adversity, deprivation, exclusion, and jungle fucking. Go ahead…tell me I can’t do something — and then step the fuck back and watch me do it.
Muffy Bolding is a mother/writer/actor/knitter/feminist/withered debutante who likes the smell of asparagus pee, and remains obsessed with the bathroom hygiene of her three children -- despite the fact that they are 23, 19, and 16. She is blissfully married to a cute Jewish boy who looks like Willie Wonka, but remains tragically in love with the dead poet, Ted Hughes. She has the mouth of a Teamster, and her patron saint is Rocco (pestilence relief.) Ms. Bolding lives in Southern California, where she enjoys typing words, making movies, and plucking the rings from the fingers of the dead. She was the co-creator and Editor-in-Chief of the award winning satire zine, Fresno Lampoon, and in between writing screenplays, carnival barking, and savagely threatening her trio of darling larvae with a wooden spoon, she currently publishes the zine, "Withered Debutante." More of her work can also be found in the anthology, "Mamaphonic: Balancing Motherhood and Other Creative Acts", the compilation zine, "Mamaphiles III: Coming Home", as well as in The Cortland Review and hipmama.com. She is currently writing and producing for film and television, and working on a book of essays entitled, "Inside A Chinese Dragon." She has slept around, but not nearly as much as she would have liked.
