World travel has been a huge part of my life since I was twenty years old. After all of these exotic experiences, I wanted to share it in some form. Combined with my interests in history and satire, what was the best way to accomplish this task? A novel!

I currently live in the Cleveland, Ohio area. I have many diverse interests, such as reading, singing (choir and karaoke), exercise, and movies.

I grew up in Northwest Ohio (near Toledo), and in the U.S., I have also lived in Ann Arbor, Austin, and Washington D.C. (metro area). I have lived in four countries overseas and visited forty-one others. I usually take one international trip each year. Last year, I really went off the beaten path, sojourning to Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzsta
