About the Author

Cliff Williams (Oats) has been a "hobo at heart" since 1990, when he attended his first National Hobo Convention in Britt, Iowa. He chose his hobo moniker because he eats rolled oats with milk and honey for breakfast. In his other life, Williams teaches philosophy at Trinity College in Illinois. He is author of Free Will and Determinism: A Dialogue, which recently went into its ninth printing. He lives in Deerfield, Illinois.
