Neal Rechtman studied writing with Alan Lelchuk and J. R. Humphreys, and published his first short story during his senior year in college (1975). Beginning in 1976 his body was inhabited by an entrepreneur, a husband, a father of two sons, and several lesser personalities, until in 2004 it was finally re-occupied by its original “writeful” owner. The 28th Amendment is the first product of this last transformation.
Neal lives in Ossining, NY with his wife Jane. His two sons have grown up and left home, so Neal spends much of his non-writing time playing bridge at the local bridge club, where he actually does encounter the singleton king of spades with astonishing frequency.
