"In many ways, I'm almost a cliche of myself. I live in a city apartment with two cats. I write short stories. I teach English Composition at the local colleges (as an adjunct). I have a master's in a (sort of) useless degree--no, not philosophy: American & New England Studies (my thesis is on popular culture and literature and can be found here).
I'm a conservative libertarian (which may or may not break the cliche), a Mormon (which probably does) and my short stories and novellas are mostly fantasy and science-fiction, rather than angst-filled stream-of-consciousness yarns about modern life.
I also adore stuff like string theory although I don't understand much of it, and am a skeptic about anything that gets too labelly."
