Blanche Knott is the author of the best-selling Truly Tasteless Jokes series. She was the first person to have four books on the New York Times bestseller list at once, which upset a lot of people in publishing. Blanche lives in Brooklyn, New York, and is still not embarrassed. If she has a tombstone, it’s going to say I Was A Clue on “Jeopardy.”
