I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. A public-school student all the way through grade school, I majored in math as an undergraduate so that I could get a job and then decided to add a philosophy major for fun. These days, the latter is what drives my writing, both fiction and non-. I try to tell all of my stories philosophically, which is to say that I try to tell stories that can educate readers about life and the world by leading them through layers of meaning and showing them connections they may not have considered.

In addition to my published Fiction and Nonfiction, I tweet @BODIEDnovel and stream on Twitch every Sunday at noon eastern. Follow me for updates on my work as well as my thoughts on:
