Ian is a native of Rockland County, New York. Though indoctrinated into the world of computer programming at a frighteningly-young age, he still became an avid fan of science fiction and fantasy literature and media.

The character of "Xentor," the initial protagonist in the first novel, was originally created when he discovered Freeform Role-Playing on an internet chat network in the early-to-mid '
