Books Description :
Writer/basketball lover/semiprofessional dog sitter. Born on a savage, volcanic island in the North, currently residing in the Big Apple. My name is weird. How weird? It's "Haukur Örn Hauksson". Yeah. Literally translated, it means "Hawk Eagle Son of Hawk". I love my parents dearly, but they can be a little bit eccentric sometimes, like when they explained their inspiration was for me to have a "Native American name". This is interesting, because I'm not Native American; I'm actually from Iceland, that cold, brutal, volcanic island in the North where Vikings wrestle polar bears, eat sour ram testicles, and have an unorthodox naming culture.
