Well I lived in Minnesota for 24 years in various cities, finally graduating high school in 1992 in a small town called Montevideo. I started writing under the pen name Raving Rendal in a Star Trek fan club (Trekadence) newsletter as a opinion writer.
I have been published a couple times in Poetry.com (though I don't count it since I have to pay for anything official). Most of my stories influences are from dreams, I don't get much influence from the world as its lately just a comedy of errors.
As of 11/2008-Took me a while to remember what E-mail I had for this...and then the password to that E-mail. I'm working right now on a story involving a character I came up with, and still Role play daily on Second Life as, the Hill Drider Speyeder Farina. It would basically be a biography which I think would be fun. I just need to find the time to write it now.
