M.D. Neu is an award-winning inclusive gay Fiction Writer with a love for writing and travel. Living in the heart of Silicon Valley (San Jose, California) and growing up around technology, he’s always been fascinated with what could be.

Also, these authors all told stories that included people who you don't typically see as heroes, if that makes sense and I wanted to do the same things in my writing.

I hope that answered your question.(less)
M.D. Neu LOL. Yep, San Jose is home, so that would be why. You're in Santa Clara, hmm I may have to show off a bit of Santa Clara in a story. :)…moreLOL. Yep, San Jose is home, so that would be why. You're in Santa Clara, hmm I may have to show off a bit of Santa Clara in a story. :)(less)
