I am a software engineer and writer, happily married and living in Chicago with my wife, three kids and one nuisance cat. I have a B.S. in Computer Science from Purdue University, and a Masters of Software Engineering from Penn State. In addition to Chicago, I have lived in Fort Wayne, IN and Philadelphia, PA.
I have been accused of being obsessed with pirates, bacon, zombies and my kids (not necessarily in that order). I’m a knitter, guitar player, budding accordionista, and a board and card game enthusiast. My fiction has appeared in Analog, Escape Pod, and The Year’s Best YA Speculative Fiction, among others. You can see a list of published works on my bibliography page.
I have been blogging more or less regularly since 2004. Before creating this site, I blogged under the handle erith1, on both LiveJournal and WordPress.com.
