I began my role-playing adventuring career in 1984 (7th grade) and have been involved in fantasy ever since, whether writing role-playing game supplements (under the official Dungeons & Dragons logo for Kenzer and Co. and additonal work on Hackmaster), novels, or short stories (many of which have been published in the small press). I live with my family in Indiana. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Informatics from Indiana University. My favorite writers are H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, Michael Moorcock, Karl E. Wagner, and Fritz Leiber. I'm an avid fan of music and my favorite musicians/bands are Bowie, Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Queen, Stones, The Doors, Prince, Neil Young, The Cars, Iggy Pop, Blondie, Ramones, The Cure, Depeche Mode, Placebo, Of Montreal, Adam and the Ants, Pixies, Bauhaus, Nick Cave, T. Rex, Roxy Music, Pulp, Smog, Ween, Roxy Music, Velvet Underground, etc. My favorite television show of all time is Community and my favorite movie of all time is Donnie Darko.
