SHORT VERSION: SFF author. Poker of cats and dogs, booper of snoots, and sipper of whiskey.

LONG VERSION: Luke was born in Bucharest, Romania. He has a B.A. in English from CSU Fullerton and is a self-proclaimed snoot booping master.

He’s not exactly sure why he’s referring to himself in the third person, but The Tell-Tale Heart definitely had a reliable narrator. Outside of whiskey, his biggest literary influences include J.K. Rowling, Edgar Allan Poe, Neil Gaiman, and Brandon Sanderson.

OTHER INFLUENCES: Tolkien; Ursula Le Guin; & Robert Jordan
