Join author, chef, music & pop culture journalist, traveller, vinyl collector and rock n’ roll obsessive Shane Pinnegar’s journey as he writes novels & short stories; reviews movies, books and music; and muses on a life spent in hot & sweaty kitchens and smokey & sticky bars, travelling exotic destinations in planes, trains, automobiles, boats and more, climbing snowy mountains and drinking cheap wine and fancy cocktails on sunny beaches, and whatever else he can think of. All the while he’s been searching for purpose and fun in equal measure, more or less (sometimes more of one, sometimes less of the other), and which one you’ll get on any given day is a lucky dip.
