VJ Books Presents Author Bill Schutt!

Author Bill SchuttBill Schutt was born in New York City and grew up on Long Island. He attended Southampton College before transferring to LIU Post College (where he received a BA in Biology). Schutt then attended Geneseo State College. There he worked with mentor Dr. Edwin Spicka, studying the ectoparasites of the gray squirrel (Sciurus caroliniensis) and earning a Master's Degree in Biology.

After spending several years working at the Environmental Protection Agency's Health Effects Research Laboratory (in the Research Triangle Park, N.C.), and two major drug companies, Schutt was accepted into Cornell University's Ph.D. program in Zoology. Under the mentorship of functional morphologist John W. Hermanson, Schutt began studying various aspects of anatomy, evolution, and behavior in bats.

Initially, Schutt investigated the passive digital lock, a ratchet-like mechanism that allows some bats to hang for extended periods of time without muscle fatigue. Gradually, Bill became more involved in the study of vampire bats _ their anatomy, evolution, behavior, and especially, their ability to move efficiently on the ground. After graduating with a Ph.D. from Cornell in 1995, Schutt taught for three years at Bloomfield College in New Jersey while simultaneously working on a Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship at the American Museum of Natural History with bat expert Nancy Simmons.

In 1998, Schutt accepted a faculty position at Southampton College (Long Island University). In 2005, he transferred to his undergraduate alma mater, LIU Post , where he is currently a Professor of Biology. Additionally, he has maintained his strong ties to the American Museum of Natural History, where he is a Research Associate in the Department of Mammalogy.

When he isn't teaching, writing, or doing research, Schutt enjoys fishing, swimming, catching his son's nasty knuckleball, attending concerts, sporting events, and the theater. Down time is usually spent reading and watching old movies. He's also a huge music fan.

Bill Schutt lives in New York with his wife and son.
