I'm a retired college English Instructor who taught literature classes including science fiction, fantasy, Shakespeare, Arthur Conan Doyle, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and a few more of my favorites. I live in a small Oregon town in a 1939 farmhouse on a half-acre with my wife and 2 cats.

My Master's degree covers five areas of specialization that have shaped my interests: Renaissance literature, Old English and Medieval literature, Mythology, Science fiction, and Post-colonial British literature.

I have been a reader of mainstream science fiction since I was 10, and I got into comics soon after (I haven't stopped reading them yet). Somewhere along the way, (around 14 or 15) I found Lord of the Rings. I was hooked on fantasy from then on. Between comics and my love of all things Fantasy, it was natural for me to also get into RPGs.

I have also dabbled in writing non-fiction stuff after college. Some techie works were published in science news for kids, and some articles for archaeology publications. I have submitted some shorter fantasy pieces here and there, but nothing published yet.
