Now: Father of two, master of neither. A gamer since the original NES, now on the Xbox One, for better or worse. Once upon a time I was a Rent-to-Own Account Manager, now a freelance writer and artist. I've drawn everything from dragon tattoos to T-shirt designs involving a man wearing pantyhose on his head. Yes, you read that right. I've written everything from a self-published novel to copy about French chateaus and bedbugs.
Before: Medically discharged from the Navy, I grabbed a Greyhound ticket to nowhere and stayed on that track for a year. I call it "Greyhound Therapy," and it gave me a much broader view of the Human Condition than I'd gotten from living in a small town with a big school in rural MO.
Overall: I'm a big fan of the fantasy genre, I love the tropes even as I try to trip them up. I'm also a big fan of psychological horror; and hope one day supernatural horror gets scary again.
