My Space: http://www.myspace.com/182803993
I escaped from Michigan after college and moved to the Chicago area where there weren't oustanding warrants on me ... just kidding. I was transferred to Illinois where I soon learned to love cornfields.
Biographical and Professional Information
I have three published fantasy/humor books, the Young Adult humor/vampire book, Fang Face, The Adventures of Guy … written by a guy (probably) and the Preditors & Editor’s Reader’s Choice winner for best Sci-Fi Fantasy, The Next Adventures of Guy … more wackiness. In addition, my short stories appear in the anthologies Heat of the Moment and Missing where all profits go to charity.
In the real world I am vice president of an electrical supply company, a business lecturer and award-winning business humor columnist, where I get in trouble for calling attorneys names like “poo poo head” and ‘weasels’ and stuff like that. So far they haven’t sued me (though my publishers probably wouldn’t mind the publicity). I have also written humor articles that have appeared in the Chicago Tribune and Cynic Magazine. They haven’t sued me either.
In the real world, I'm married, with two critters … er … daughters (weird beings who pretend to be women) and a bunch of critters that I'm allergic to.
