Bill Reagan

William Reagan decided to be born in Massachusetts because he knew that his accent would be a lifelong amusement to everyone on earth except people from Massachusetts. He decided to move to Maine because he was eleven and his parents were doing the same thing, and eleven is an impressionable age. He decided to move to Portland, Oregon because the fabulous woman who would give birth to his beautiful daughter eight years later moved there first. It is unlikely he will move again. William is a freelance advertising copywriter who champions the assertion that the most effective marketing speaks honestly to the audience, without gimmick and hyperbole, and that gratuitous use of sexuality is a deplorable method of marketing vacuum cleaners, banking, and college. He is an avid reader and writer of children's picture books, as well as haiku, essays, and occasional fiction. Evidence can be found at
