B.D. Anklevich


B.D. Anklevich is a husband and father of four children. With the little time left over after he takes care of those responsibilities, he podcasts with his good friend and fellow writer, Rish Outfield. Their primary show is called The Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine, in which they release fullcast productions of genre short stories for free consumption (found at dunesteef.com). Their secondary show is called Dunesteef's That Gets My Goat podcast, in which they discuss geek related topics like books, movies, conventions, writing, and so forth (found at dunesteef.blogspot.com). B.D. Anklevich also does a solo podcast called The Anklecast, in which he discusses his adventures in writing and life (found at BigAnklevich.blogspot.com).

After all of that, he does his best to make room for writing, a passion that he has been unable to give up on despite all the advice he was given to do so. Writers always seem to say that if you can be happy doing anything besides writing, do it. Only write if the lack of writing makes you unhappy. That phrase perfectly sums up his relationship with writing. His mood can very often be traced to whether he has been successful in finding some time to write that day or not. Somehow, his entire self-worth seems to be wrapped up in his writing successes and failures.

Outside writing and podcasting, B.D. Anklevich enjoys sports, particularly American football and European football (what he likes to affectionately call soccer). He also likes running for fun and fitness, and crossfit. Unfortunately he also very much enjoys unhealthy food like pizza and unhealthy sugary drinks like Mountain Dew and Dr. Pepper. Those tend to counteract any progress he makes with the running and workouts. It's a constant battle.

Some of his favorite film/television/book properties are Firefly, Game of Thrones (or A Song of Ice and Fire...why didn't they call the TV show that? Weird, right?), Ender's Game, Wheel of Time, Dragonriders of Pern, Star Wars, Marvel Comics, The Lord of the Rings, Dragonlance, and so on and so on.
