Raised in Massachusetts, William Gibson is a Brown University graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree. He served as a Special Agent in Counterintelligence in the Army during the Vietnam War, and obtained an MBA after that. Forty years of his working life have been at least partially devoted to putting words together, first writing intelligence and inspection reports for the military. Out of the Army, he followed a career in banking in Risk Management and Credit Administration. It was professionally satisfying to generate policies, plans, and reports for the bank. But when he retired, he opted for the fun of writing about zombies, science fiction, and now something real like Bigfoot. He currently resides in Berkley, Massachusetts.
