Ernest Pick has been writing for much of his life. At an early age, he won a play writing contest at UCLA where his work was produced to considerable acclaim. His play Rasputin was produced at another American college and condemned by Rasputin's daughter, Maria, despite the fact that the piece followed closely her own memoir of her father. Ernest has written several other novels, most notably I Think I Went To London, Rise of the Looney Bird, and Spanish Agent. He has also translated a novel from German into English as well as La Sociologie de la Litterature into English. Presently he is working on a new novel to be called Assisted Living.
