About the author

J Alan Erwine

J Alan Erwine lives just outside of Denver with his amazing wife and their youngest daughter. Yes, J is now old enough to have two adult daughters. J’s family shares their household with two cats, and a turtle that pretty much keeps to himself.
J has published more than 60 short stories, three novels, and numerous short story collections. A few years ago, J realized that although he loved the small press, he couldn’t make enough money writing for them, so at that point, he took control of most of his work, and has been publishing mostly independently ever since.
J is the managing editor at Nomadic Delirium Press, and in addition to writing and editing, J has also taken an interest in creating role playing games. He is the co-creator of the Ephemeris Science Fiction RPG, and the creator of the Rocks on the Other Side and Battle for Turtle Island RPGs.
