Who does Ken Foster think he is?

My bio

There are several Ken Fosters running around, and many of us are quite accomplished: an artist, a musician, a few elected officials.  I am none of these.  


I am the author of several books, including the memoir The Dogs Who Found Me.  My work has also appeared in publications such as The San Francisco Chronicle, The Los Angeles Times, Village Voice, Bark, Flaunt, Time Out New York, McSweeney's, Fence, Newsday, etc.  


I grew up in Pennsylvania, earned a BA at Lock Haven University and and M.Ed at Northeastern University in Boston before going back to school again for my MFA at Columbia University.  I have too many degrees.  


My memoir and it's success inspired me to become more involved with animals and their people.  Currently, in addition to writing, I work in the Bronx providing resources to pet owners in underserved communities.
