SpineOut : February - March 2017
Len Vlahos played guitar for a pop-punk band called Woofing Cookies throughout the 1980s. After the band broke up, Len ended up taking over the Tattered Cover Book Store in Denver, and used his experiences of jamming on New York City stages to write The Scar Boys, the story of a high school burns victim who founds a punk-rock band. This was followed up by the sequel, Scar Girls, alongside which Len released some original music, including the single ‘That’s Not My Leg’. Now departing from his familiar past as a punk rocker but remaining in the realm of YA literature, Len has written Life in a Fishbowl, a story about 15-year-old Jackie Stone and her dying father. Desperate to ensure his family’s financial security before he succumbs to a brain tumour, Jackie’s father puts his life up for auction – and it’s purchased by a reality TV crew.
