Drew Nicholson is an early-middle aged geek. He’s happily married the second time around, and has two fantastic sons. He’s a die hard Cubs fan, which contributes to his pathos, which makes being a poet marginally easier. He directed the Great Google+ Art Experiment video (http://writingofanovel.blogspot.com/), which led directly to him being appointed Art Director of Sociolog+ (http://sociologyplus.com), where he curates an arts community made up of painters and sketchers, musicians and songwriters, poets and videographers. Circle him on Google+ (http://writingofanovel.blogspot.com/), where he writes poetry and short stories while engaging in some of the best conversations on the net. He’s also the co-founder of the soon-to-be-online publishing house Scriptorum Tantillum, of which this is the first issue, and has been published on CuriosityQuills.com. He harbors a deep love for Star Wars, Star Trek, Firefly, BSG, Horatio Hornblower, Farscape and David Brin novels, as well as a new found love for scotch to go with his long love affair with good beer. He lives near Chicago, Illinois.
