About this author


In 2006, when Pluto was demoted from being a planet, my first thoughts were how to write a story about it. I eventually came up with “The Kingdom of Beer” which is a standalone story set in my Human Republic Universe. When I was writing this, I was a fan of Bill Geist and his humorous look at small town America, so I modeled the main character on him.
