J. Dane Tyler


J. Dane Tyler is a father, husband and Christian living in the greater Chicago metro area and lamenting hot, humid summers and long, bitter-cold winters while pining away for his lost hair color and waistline. He enjoys his family and sitting around in his underwear, scratching himself in unmentionable places, drinking coffee and complaining.

In short, he's a writer. He has had a non-fiction book published under another name and is currently working on a second. When he remembers to do so, he works in the IT industry. Occasionally.
