Hello! Nice to connect with you!
A Hoosier from the Heartland, I grew up in the patchwork farm edges of Columbus, Indiana. The summer before my ninth grade year, my folks moved us 20 minutes up the road to the Surprisingly Little Town of Hope. Acres of wood and field were my haven during my rites of youth. Hunting and motorcycles, dreams and writing filled my time. I graduated from Columbus East High, then Purdue University. I'm a big fan of nature, especially bugs.
Then I moved to a big city (Indianapolis) and then an even bigger city (Houston) and my scenery changed from insects and looking up at the stars to robots and still looking up at the stars. One obscure day, I felt a pain in my ass - folks, that is literal, not just Houston traffic - thus began a pain journey that has lasted well beyond a decade and ever changed my life. My love of creation and its intricate creatures holds major influence in my life and my passion for writing is the calling I have no choice but to obey.
Otherwise I'd be lost.
