Al Ridenour
Ridenour's academic background includes BAs with honors in German and English, interests recently combined in the 2016 publication of his second nonfiction book, The Krampus and the Old, Dark Christmas. My previous book Offbeat Food, Adventures in an Omnivorous World was written in 2000 for Santa Monica Press, after articles contributed to the LA Times, LA Weekly, and New Times Los Angeles caught the attention of the publisher.

Prior to working as a writer, he had pursued work toward an MFA in animation at UCLA, but was hired out of school before completion of that degree after a screening of his school project attracted attention at a 1989 animation (SIGGRAPH) convention.
