I'm a writer wannabe from the age of 12 and a lifelong scifi/horror/fantasy geek. I'm also a former Jehovah's Witness turned secular atheist. Meanwhile, my wife and in-laws remain loyal Jehovah's Witnesses. So that's fun. I'm a severe migraine sufferer and pet rat owner. Note that these things aren't necessarily related.
Hey, rats are cool. Migraines, not so much.
I am about to start going to college at 39 and stepping down to a part-time job.
