About Edwin Decker
Edwin Decker is a freelance writer living in San Diego, California. He has contributed to magazines and newspapers around the country including, Modern Drunkard Magazine, San Diego Reader, The San Diego Union-Tribune, The Stranger (in Seattle), Tucson Weekly, Cleveland Scene, Creative Loafing (Atlanta), and San Diego CityBeat – the latter of which runs his sarcastic, somewhat impolite column called Sordid Tales.

His book Barzilla and Other Psalms was nominated for a 2007 San Diego Book Award and his performance piece, “Questioning Innocence is Questionable,” won the San Diego Visual Arts Network multi-genre Performance Slam grand prize.
Decker is also on staff at the Southern California Writer’s Conference during which he runs workshops and performs other duties. You can read his columns and various other writings at www.edwindecker.com.
“At times whimsical and wonderful, at times brutal and twisted, at other times pained and longing, Edwin Decker doesn’t let you get comfortable.”
(Dave Rolland, editor, San Diego CityBeat)
“Edwin Decker is offensive, irreverent and inappropriate. I can’t believe I haven’t slept with him yet.”
