Lots of fun.
Who am I kidding? Every day is damned book day for me. #ReadaDamnedBookToday
Right now I'm pretty much at, to quote Buffy, "Fire bad, tree pretty."
Stefon Mears grew up in California, Middle-Earth, and Amber. He went to U.C. Berkeley intending to major in Genetics, but the call of storytelling compelled him to graduate with a B.A. in Religious Studies (double emphasis in Mythology and Ritual). He later earned an MFA in Creative Writing from the Northwest Institute of Literary Arts, with a Fiction major, and has published many short stories, poems and essays.
Stefon has been an invited guest at a major Vodou ceremony in New Orleans, taught classes in the Brazilian martial art of Capoeira, spoken on a panel at a World Fantasy Conference, and engraved his own set of Norse runes.
Stefon has worked as a professional audio engineer and played straight pool for money. He is an avid, lifelong fan of the San Francisco Giants. He lives in Portland, Oregon, with his wife and three cats, and when not writing he can often be found playing roleplaying games.
Stefon’s debut novel, Magician’s Choice, is in stores now.
