Eliot Fintushel began his professional acting career at thirty, at a mime theater in upstate New York. In return for mopping, he was allowed to study, and later to perform, with all the great dancers, mimes, puppeteers, actors, mask performers, and storytellers who did shows at that theater. Since then, he has received the NEA Solo Performer Fellowship twice, along with many grants for creating and touring shows from arts councils and foundations on both coasts. You may see him in a plaster-spattered apron, casting faces on street corners in his current project (Faces of Sonoma County), funded by the Sonoma County Cultural Arts Council. Eliot has performed nearly four thousand solo shows at schools, theaters, and community centers, including solo performances at the National Theater in Washington DC and at various international festivals. An adjunct theater professor at the Santa Rosa JC, Eliot's new novel, Breakfast With The Ones You Love, will be appearing from Bantam/Dell in the fall of 2006. His short fiction can be found in many science fiction magazines and anthologies.
