After some years as an actor and a musician, Roy Edroso went to work at the writing trade. At first a great deal of his output was corporate communications and public relations content, but some of it was what might be called journalism, which is almost as bad. He feels most in his element, for want of a better word, writing humorously and dark, which naturally leads him to politics, though not only there. In the main he shares the sentiment of Loudon Wainwright III: “It always amazes me when I get paid.”
