Bewildering Stories biography
Born in 1962, I came up in a time when science fiction, fantasy and horror were blossoming, and I fell in love with them all. Initially, I read a lot of Isaac Asimov and Arthur C Clarke, in addition to about a zillion comic books. The 1940s being not too far in the past, I also devoured the history of World War Two.
Under the tutelage of my older brother, Brian, I was exposed to the wonders of Monty Python’s Flying Circus, the Cthulhu Mythos, the great old black and white horror movies and the awesomeness of Hammer Films.
My family was of American Indian descent but knew virtually nothing of that part of our lineage. I became fascinated, and this blended with my other obsessions. It also helped me see what I believe to be a dovetail of the scientific and religious views of reality and the beginning of the universe, and I am still baffled why the two views are so polarizing.
I often fiddle with writing and occasionally get semi-serious about it. I am from Columbus, Ohio and will always be a Buckeye at heart, though I have lived in Montana for almost three decades. I click away at my desk, which looks out onto a beautiful view, and am usually sipping coffee or tea. I suppose I’ll never be successful as a writer or artist until I get a cat, as that appears to be a requisite, though there is a dog here. His name is Tindal.
