Sean M. Locke lives in northern Colorado, in a strange little pocket universe on US Highway 287 that is exactly twenty minutes' drive to anything useful or fun. He is a devoted husband, a father of two delightful children, an emerging author of speculative fiction, and happens to also be bisexual. His day job is dreadfully boring—suffice it to say that he does computer things to very big data storage arrays for people who need those computer things done. He hopes someday to make a living of his fiction writing. When he is not busy as a family man, salary man, or writing man, he will take some time to lift heavy things, or practice martial arts. He does not have a surplus of free time.
