  • I grew up in Pleasant Lake, Indiana. Like most of small town America, it was homey, beautiful, complacent, and really into John Mellencamp. I like each of these enough, but I had to leave. I went to Indianapolis for college; it was my first time living in a city bigger than 1,000 people. I learned about parking meters and traffic, but I also became involved with community organizing, most notably as a member of a union campaign for university cafeteria workers. I hit the underground for a year before I resurfaced as a public school math tutor in Denver, Colorado. I started writing on weekends and school vacation days, soon developing this psychotic, suspenseful, and humorous debut novel following an aging veteran and his dying freedoms in Northeast Indiana. War in October will be available this Friday, February 5th!
