(2019) Max by a blue door. Credit: Chris Hopkins.
(2019) Max wearing ostentatious socks. Fun fact: The doorknob was photoshopped out of this picture. Credit: Chris Hopkins.
(2019) Max leans against a bluestone pillar. Credit: Chris Hopkins.
(2019) Imagine: You come around this pillar and I'm just standing there looking at you like this. Creepy, isn't it. Credit: Chris Hopkins.
(2019) Here Andrew was like, "Open your mouth, but only a little," and I said, "Hnnh hrr?", which was This much? without opening my mouth too much. Credit: Andrew Campbell.
(2019) Then Andrew said, "Gaze off into the distance like you know things no-one else does," and I said, "No problem, Andrew, that's my default position." Credit: Andrew Campbell.
(2019) I like this one because I look like I've just returned from a space mission. You can see that, right? Like I'm an astronaut? I can totally see it. Credit: Andrew Campbell.

Standing in front of a painting promoting a bookstore event I did (also for Barbara's in Chicago, although at their old store, in 1999) for Syrup. The painting was by a girl who worked there and when I wanted to buy it she was really excited because it was her first ever sale. Incidentally, when I took this photo I was really tired.

(2011) A book reading at Embiggen Books, which was a really terrific bookstore in Melbourne, Australia.
(2010) I include this even though no-one will ever want to reprint it because it's the best photo I will ever be involved in. Look at that. That's awesome. Credit: Jennifer Barry. Baby: Matilda Barry.
(Circa 2005) Meeting a fan (Lauren Thomas) at a reading at the same bookstore. Credit: Carolyn Wagner.
(Circa 2005) Me double-checking the spelling of the name of a fan (Lauren Thomas) while she giggles adorably and treats me like a total rock star. (You probably don't think there are too many ways to spell Lauren. What I have learned is that there are many ways to spell everything, and nobody likes a mis-dedicated book.) Credit: Carolyn Wagner.
(1998) Your standard author headshot. I am super mysterious yet approachable. Credit: Jennifer Barry.
(2003) This was used as the author photo on Jennifer Government. I feel terrible about that because you can clearly see I'm using Windows. All I can say is I didn't know any better at the time. Photo by me.
