After a sojourn in the military, I spent some time as an IT drone in corporate America. I didn't care much care for that, so I'm now attempting to pursue a scientific career. I've lived all over the United States and overseas for a couple of years in South Korea. Currently, I reside in Wisconsin with my spouse and our two children.
I write stories in a variety of genres, though most of my work in the last couple of years has involved a fantasy or paranormal component.
My readings habits, on the other hand, cover almost every genre and type of book. As long as it's well-written, I'll read it. I do have a particular soft-spot for historical fiction and young adult as of late.
I maintain a writing blog at riftwatcher.blogspot.com.
