Mad writing skills? I have them. During my 10-year career, I’ve worked as a newspaper reporter, opinion columnist, travel blogger, technical writer, and marketing copywriter…and, just for fun, as a scribbler of short science fiction stories and full-length sci-fi and historical fiction novels.
I graduated from North Dakota State University in December 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism, Broadcasting, and Mass Communication Technologies. (Quite the mouthful, I know…the words ran off the edge of the diploma.) I minored in English, too. I lived in South Korea for four years, working as an English teacher; for two of those years, I was an assistant professor of English at Sejong University in Seoul. I’m also a trained bartender and a private pilot. My hobbies are traveling, keeping a weekly diary, mixing delicious drinks, smoking pipes and cigars, target shooting, flying small airplanes, reading classical literature and historical nonfiction (and tons of sci-fi, of course), watching Akira Kurosawa films, and writing historical and science fiction. My not-so-secret addictions are beef jerky, Jethro Tull, video games, Stoic philosophy, and correcting people’s grammar on social media.
